Meet our Executive team

The faces behind the dream

“None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.” – Mother Teresa

Meet our executive team.  As part of our own empowerment project, LU4C has also created a “Shadow Executive Team” 

This team is made up of our younger Volunteers and  are being exposed to all of the backroom requirements and processes needed to run our organization and our hope is that they will continue to carry the LU4C flag.
