HOPE FOR NEW YORK
Mont Lawn City Camp
The Bronx · Uptown

Mont Lawn City Camp (MLCC) is a Christian mentoring program for at-risk youth. 

Mission: To offer children in New York City the opportunity to unlock their full potential, transcend cycles of limited opportunity and develop into morally grounded, academically accomplished leaders as they see their lives transformed to hope, joy, lasting productivity and eternal life through the power of Jesus Christ. 

OUR PARTNERSHIP
Our volunteers support youth in their personal, social, and academic development by providing mentoring and tutoring for students.
Our funding helps to support the MLCC's expansion of their mentoring programs, enrichment activities and field trips, retreats and leadership development opportunities for youth.
Our capacity building support has helped MLCC consider its outcomes metrics to monitor impact and effectiveness of their at-risk youth programs.
