Ambassador Of Tomorrow is our economic impact of giving back to the next generation. Whether it's through our Scholarships, Research & Business Development, or building a National Youth Career Center. It is our goal to empower, equip, and produce quality leaders ready to share their own talented gifts to the world.
What makes Lighthouse Foundation so unique is that every high school student has the potential of attending a 2-year or 4-year college or university after graduation. But we feel in many cases students don't even have a clue of what type of career they would like to pursue. Which takes away time along with placing a huge financial burden on their future aspirations.
