The L.O.T. Youth Camp & Mentoring Program is a free program designed to lead and mentor middle school youth over a three-year period. The program provides a constructive learning environment and positively impacts the lives of the youth through the use of cultural and academic exposure, life application field trips, community service, religion, educational instruction, mentoring, and short and long-term goal setting. Additionally, the program provides an intensive study of the five social institutions of America (Economics, Education, Family, Government, and Religion). Throughout the duration of the program, youth learn to value the institutions as well as gain an understanding of how these institutions affect their lives.
The mission of the I-THRIVE Youth Mentoring Program is to empower male youth in our community to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their personal potential.
