YOUTH SYMPOSIUM

The annual Youth Symposium highlights some of the prevalent concerns that impact youth daily as well as creates dialogue, generates opportunities for youth to connect to community resources, and provides inspiration for making long-lasting positive change. The symposium equips those in attendance with the skills and competencies to advocate for themselves and includes workshops/activities centered around topics including college readiness, social and legislative actions/resources, financial literacy, teen pregnancy prevention, self-esteem, and many more.

COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

 

In today's global economy, higher education is no longer a luxury for the privileged few, but a necessity for individual economic opportunity. At the same time, college has never been more expensive.  The Light & Achievement Educational Foundation provides academic scholarships to students entering and attending four-year universities.

HEALTH AWARENESS

PRENATAL EDUCATION

Having a healthy pregnancy is one of the best ways to promote a healthy birth. Light & Achievement's Prenatal Education events seek to improve pregnancy outcomes in high-risk communities by increasing the number of women of childbearing age who receive adequate prenatal education, care, and resources. This annual event takes place every third Saturday in January in conjunction with National Birth Defects Awareness Month.

and well-being.  We seek to provide relevant information and education on issues such as mental health, domestic and intimate partner abuse, stress management, nutrition, and much more.

SWIM CLINICS

 

Sixty-four percent of black children cannot swim; they drown at a rate nearly three times higher than their white peers, according to USA Swimming.  The Light & Achievement Educational Foundation partners with local organizations and communities by providing swim clinics and swim lessons to  address this disparity.
