About Us

The Youth Leadership Foundations serves 350 students annually with its quality mentoring programs in seven school partners across the city. YLF serves third through twelfth grade students after school, on Saturday, in summer and now, virtual mentorship is LIVE. No matter the format, our programs feature one-on-one mentoring, formative talks about character, intentional engagement of parents and dedicated time for “community-making” (e.g., meal times, team-building & sports activity, etc).

Our mentors believe that a student grows as a person when (1) parents are supported to parent; (2) students experience true friendship and belonging in community; and (3) students learn to be generous according to their circumstances and give back to others. Nine-in-ten students describe our programs as life-changing.
