It takes a crew to raise a child
At Lighthouse we want to activate our entire community and form a movement that ensures our young people reach their full potential and thrive. To accomplish this, we extend an invitation to community members interested in volunteering, as well as businesses eager to share their skills or offer opportunities to join the Lighthouse Crew and contribute to our collective efforts in delivering positive change.
