In Miami-Dade County, many young people face significant barriers to achieving their full potential, including socio-economic challenges, lack of access to quality educational resources, and limited exposure to positive role models. 

Our nonprofit organization seeks to address these needs by providing a mobile mentorship program that connects young people with dedicated mentors, offering them guidance, support, and the tools they need to succeed.

Currently, our program continues to recruit and train dedicated mentors from diverse backgrounds who provide guidance, support, and encouragement to young people. Mentors and mentees participate in regular meetings, group activities, and workshops, all designed to foster personal growth, academic achievement, and social-emotional well-being.

When you donate to Lockhart Cares, Inc, no matter how little or big the amount, your contribution allows us to make a real difference in lives of Miami Dade County Youth.

Your financial contribution supports the following activities:

  • Recruiting new mentors
  • Rent for brick and mortar site for our Mentees to meet with their mentors, attend workshops, and have a safe place to be. 
  • Covering the costs of background checks, while ensuring we are matching children to responsible mentors that have experienced similar life challenges (i.e foster care, incarcerated parent as a youth) 
  • Enabling ongoing supervision and relationship support for every mentor, youth and the youth’s family
  • Providing cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for youth

Statistics show, when young people are mentored effectively:

• 98% stay in school

• 98% do not become teen parents

• 85% don’t use drugs

• 98% avoid gang participation
