Where Hope Starts To Heal

Legend In The Making Community Outreach, Inc. wants to spread the message of hope through education systems across Miami-Dade County. We are always raising funds and promoting awareness to instill faith in higher education and make a difference in the world. Through advocacy work, tutoring programs, community involvement, leadership activities, college readiness and other activities, our team works tirelessly each day with the same goals in mind ranging from: the reduction in teen pregnancy, increased literacy and math skills, an increase in self reliance, knowledge attitudes and skills, a decline in high school and middle school drop out rates, an increase in college acceptance rates, an increase in test scores, a decline in gang initiation and much more!

Mission

Legend In The Making Community Outreach Incorporated is a philanthropic leadership development that invests for the long-term in low-income middle and high school students from Miami Dade County. The mission of Legend In The Making Community Outreach Inc. is to cultivate resiliency, eagerness, altruism, and performance in young people who are at risk of failing to fulfill their potential in order to prepare these students to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and receive higher education so that they may lead in their communities.

Legend In The Making Community Outreach Inc. seeks to accomplish this mission through implementing experiential education programs, intensive long-term mentoring, and access to private resources that are usually unavailable to low-income students, including college counseling workshops and professional development. Throughout this unique and special intervention, students engage with other young people from diverse communities, find a forum to discover their authentic voices, and integrate their experiences into extended visions for their futures. The long term-goal of LITMCO is that individual students will not only transform their own lives, but that they develop and enhance skills and values to become a new generation of leaders, transforming the schools and communities in which they live.
