We believe in the power of relationships to transform lives.
Mentoring assures a young person that there is someone who cares about them.
LACF Mentoring is designed to connect and build relationships between students in our community and caring adults. Our program is faith-based, community-centered, and focused on positive youth development.
The best way to understand what mentoring is like is through the eyes of one of our mentors.
