Little Lights is a DC-based non-profit serving underserved youth and their families in Southeast Washington, DC. Over the past 20 years, it has grown from one man tutoring children at his parent’s store to an organization with 13 full-time and 40 part-time staff; 120 weekly volunteers; and 45 adults who meet with and mentor kids, one-on-one, on weekends. We are joined by Founder and Executive Director Steve Park, who talks about the kids they work with and the importance of compassion.
A call to action to view strangers and the vulnerable with compassion - and in turn help yourself.
There are amazing kids in underserved neighborhoods with parents who deeply care about them.
Just working with the kids is not enough.
