The Leon Foundation of Excellence was founded in 2016 with the goal of supporting students who were at risk of failing high school or on probation. The program provided a community for the students, helped them create a compelling future and gain the skills necessary to stay in school.
After completing the program, high schoolers who were once unsure if they would even see their 18th birthday due to local poverty and violence, began to imagine a future for themselves and go to college.
Now serving students from all over the world, The Leon Foundation of Excellence (LFE) has inspired hundreds of students to set big goals, rewrite their internal narratives, develop confidence, and know their worth.
Our original cohort of students are now young professionals who give back, pay it forward, and lead with empathy and compassion, breaking cycles of PTA. Come join our team!
