The Mission of the L.Monique Foundation is linking together diverse families, youth and community members to build a brighter future for our children.
Formed in January 2019, we are committed to the idea that every young person, from all neighborhoods and backgrounds of Duval County (Jacksonville, Fl.) deserves encouragement, support, nurturing and essential resources to succeed.
We also believe that no man or entity is an island. So, by cultivating partnerships with local government, community leaders, business associations and corporate partners, our goal is to demonstrate to the youth of Duval County that our village is strong and united.
For far too long, the narrative of our young people has been negative and bleek, but we know better, and now we must do better by them.
Shaking our head is no longer the acceptable response. We work together to find solutions. We reward good behavior to showcase the young people who persevere despite their circumstances. We mentor those who need additional support because the more knowledge we impart to our youth, the better their chances of success. When they win we all win!
Finally, we celebrate our victories the only way we know how... BIG and BOLD!
Sponsor a Child. Support a School. Volunteer your time and talents. Become a Corporate Partner. Learn how we can make a difference together.
Investing in the Youth is Investing in You! With youth-based programs, the L. Monique Foundation is able to give back to help build community by investing in the future leaders of tomorrow.
