#GivingTuesday 2023

Join us in a global day of giving, November 28.

Hear stories from former YLF mentors about what they learned from their mentees and how your support can help.

Our students most value being a part of YLF because of the friendship they share with their mentor. Students have greater self-confidence, set and achieve more goals and develop positive habits related to character as a result of their time with mentors.


The life-changing work we do is possible because of staff and volunteers that are living out the values they impart to students: to build character and live a life of excellence.
