Light the Way Foundation's mission for the mentor program is to enhance the development of youth by providing thought provoking and releveant topics of discussion. We want youth to not only be well-informed about current and social events affecting their lives, but to also engage in conversations that will help them with conflict resolution and appreciate diverse ideas. The mentor program provides a variety of workshops, guest speakers, and incorporates educational and/or college tours.


The mentor program is typically held every second Saturday of the month (September - May) for youth in grades 6th to 10th. For more information, please email

Dear Janice and Julia,

"I can save people now."
"It was really cool."
"They were great!  Showed me a lot if I get into one of those situations."
"I enjoyed this section because it taught me the requirements of how to save a person's life in an emergency and I would like for them to come back again."
"I am now one step closer to achieving my dream of becoming a doctor.  Thank you!"
"I liked the whole program teaching us new things."
"I think this session will be helpful for the future."
"I enjoyed the session.  It was fun."
