About Us


Our Mission

New Life Direction is a community based non-profit organization serving at risk youth, providing them with the tools to expand their education, to realize their dreams, to foster alternatives to violence, to enable growth, and empowerment while becoming contributing members to society. 


Mentorship Program for Boys and Girls

We work with boys and girls ages 3 - 17 years old. We provide mentorship through support, coaching, and facilitating programs and/or events. The young ladies and men are empowered to maintain academic excellence through constant mentor support, report card  check up, one-on-one meetings, tutorship, and guidance. All of NLD members are inspired to continue to higher education and to continue with their  academic success. They are motivated by getting to shadow, meet, and experience.  NLD participants have the opportunity to participate in sports events, enriching activities, and they go on trips to universities, and other fun trips.


Believe . Achieve . Inspire

We expect and support greatness, individuality, creativity, sportsmanship, and leadership. We mentor the children so that they may explore and work towards fortifying their strengths, working in their weaknesses, and discovering what it is they do best.
