History

Primavera Mentoring began as a dream of Ethan Parker, a musician and Worship Leader at Harborside Christian Church, who envisioned children of the community who find themselves in tough situations being lifted up by members of local churches.

This dream evolved into Project Primavera, which became a nonprofit that provided free music lessons to youth. It also hosted an annual festival called Primavera Music Festival, which welcomed over 29,000 attendees into its gates. After being absorbed into Harborside Christian Church’s outreach program, the organization is now beginning to serve youth in more than just a musical capacity and instead offer a more robust mentoring experience. Today, the newly named Primavera Mentoring is ready to launch its first on-site mentoring program at the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch in September to serve the youth who reside there.
