Read more about our Annual
Rae of Hope Retreat

Bianca Rae Foundation has impacted over 3,000 middle-school children from all over the Coachella Valley, where they attend breakout groups to learn about building their self-esteem, social-media safety, anti-bullying, leadership, and crucial life skills to become their best selves.Our Rae of Hope retreat is one day where children get to learn about ways to get involved in their community, a foreign concept to many of them. Children learn tips and tricks to boost their self-esteem and feel better about themselves. They hear from inspirational public figures who have been bullied themselves about how they overcame those challenges. Kids get to learn about team building and working together through fun activities.  One of the highlights at our retreats is having influential, high-profile members of the community share life-changing advice with the kids. The power of influence is alive and well with today’s youth.
