PROGRAMS

The Lawrence Funderburke Youth Organization (LFYO) serves the needs of youth ages 9-14. Our long-term, holistic, mentoring, financial literacy and life skills training programs are designed to equip youth with the knowledge, resources and opportunities to succeed. Additionally, our group/sports activities & camps and our scholarship opportunities are focused on providing access to resources to allow youth to thrive and succeed in and outside of the classroom.

Mentoring

Our complete program is centered around the development of healthy, long-term mentoring relationships. Youth participants are matched in small groups with caring, compassionate, committed mentors who are pre-screened and trained.

 

Lifeskills

Our life skills curriculum, known as Are you a POSITIVE one or a NEGATIVE zero?, is age specific and includes, group activities, workshops and group discussions.

The program focus includes:

  • Character & Leadership Development
  • Professional & Personal Etiquette
  • Community Awareness
  • Finance
  • Health & Fitness
  • Self Image
  • Spiritual Enrichment
  • Group/Sport Activities & Camps

     

    The group/sport activities and camps component is designed to equip youth with the skills necessary to compete in group activities and sports, learn good sportsmanship and realize the proper perspective to keep when competing in sports.

     

    Scholarships

    LFYO is committed to providing scholarships to program participants for assistance with post-secondary education expenses. Two endowed scholarships have been established with The Ohio State University for the benefit of LFYO participants and several other scholarship opportunities are available and others are being created as well.
