Our Mission at the Derrel Thomas Foundation is to positively impact lives, by inspiring individuals to set and achieve the highest standard of goals. We bring guidance through the powerful tools of education, information, and good sportsmanship. We encourage character development of our youth through dedication, hard work, and team effort. We commit ourselves to the highest measure of our greatest investment, our youth, our future.

Our Vision at  the DERREL THOMAS FOUNDATION is to establish a program that will inspire youth from ages 8 to 18, both boys and girls of diverse backgrounds throughout the Inland Empire, to rise above the challenges of life, no matter their household status, ethnicity, or economic obstacles and move boldly into the roles of the future leaders of our world.
