Ubiquity Youth Alliance is the successor to the Quest Youth Development Program, a nonprofit organization founded in 1998 to provide youth and young adults aged 12-25 with a variety of social, cultural, recreational and educational programs. Since its founding, Quest successfully implemented community and school-based academic and enrichment programs that have contributed to the personal growth and academic performance of many young people in the Southern Marin community and broader San Francisco Bay Area.
Our mission is to help students define and accomplish their goals, develop character, build self-confidence, and to develop positive peer relationships. We seek to provide students with the knowledge they need to reach their goals and aspirations. We seek to provide an environment that will provide each student with the best possible opportunity to experience personal growth both on interpersonal and intrapersonal levels.
We want our young people to develop a sense of self, to feel connected to their community, and to develop partnerships with caring adults. These critical life skills serve youth well.
Our Youth Development Approach
The aim of youth development programs is to provide experiences through which young people learn to navigate the world in pursuit of positive goals. Youth development programs go far beyond programs intended to prevent remediate specific behaviors that put young people “at-risk”. We embrace youth development practices that are designed to achieve high-quality experiences for young people. We seek to create programs that allow youth to demonstrate creative and practical skills.

This summer was really about each member of our team identifying our strengths and improving our skills. Mike really wanted us to be seen and to prove that we came to play. This experience really was amazing and our team really developed an unbreakable bond.
Meeting and training with exchange players from all over the world this summer was life changing. It was inspiring to train with girls who love the sport and who are so dedicated. These girls were role models for the younger girls, and for me, and I know that we’ll be friends for a long time. Also I’d like to especially thank Mike and Stefan for being at every practice to get us ready for the important tournaments that everyone hoped might change the future for our players. Thank you to everyone who put work into creating this amazing program. I think I’m speaking for all of the travel team players when I say that it had a positive effect on our lives in general, not just our basketball lives.
Every coach here, especially Mike, went above and beyond for every single player this summer. It was because of them that we got a chance to play in front of as many college coaches as possible and to really show them what we’ve got, and for that I am extremely grateful. This is definitely a one of a kind experience that I’m really happy I got to be a part of. Mike, I don’t think you realize how grateful I am for all your effort and hard work that you put in to this program to make it happen.
