Videos

Please enjoy the series of super short I AM videos below highlighting our community.

LightHouse participates in Valley Gives in order to support ALL of our students to define themselves and say: I am. Hear direct from our community. On Valley Gives Day we will share a slightly longer video featuring our students.



LightHouse students define themselves. With support from advisors and our entire community, our students develop vision for their own futures, take ownership of it, and build the skills to make it happen. Our students tell us who they are and who they want to become. We offer the space and support for them to say: I Am.

More than 80% of our students require substantial scholarship in order to attend LightHouse. This is made possible through gifts like yours.

Trajectories are changing at LightHouse. Dreams are in development. Possibility is on the table. Because of you.

Thank you!
