Who We Are
The LIME Foundation seeks to harness each individual’s potential by providing vital skills for the construction trades; in music, the performing arts and technology; and for the health of senior citizens.
what we do
The NextGen Trades Academy prepares students who may not have the opportunity to go to college for well-paying work in the construction trades. We not only train them, but help graduates of the program find gainful employment (paid apprenticeships), which at the same time helps enlarge the workforce available to local contractors. The introduction from Letitia, below, highlights the program in under two minutes.
The Turner Arts Initiative (TAI) brings positive, structured activities to disadvantaged youth, helping prevent or reduce negative influences that afflict young people (e.g., substance abuse, teen pregnancy, truancy, loneliness, obesity, bullying, exclusion, etc.) Participants learn musical instruments or study technology, but most importantly, they learn to use music and dance as a means of expression. TAI offers both summer and after-school programs that include mentoring, tutoring and an activity center.
