Who We Are

At the Light Foundation, we believe through hard work and achievement, self–confidence is built. This is one of the best defenses a child can have against negative influences. Through our unique programming, we provide young adults outdoor and hands-on learning opportunities and inspire young people to believe in themselves and their ability to be great leaders. Not only are we helping them down their own path toward becoming successful adults, but we are building healthy, responsible, and motivated citizens for generations to come.
