Lakota Children's Enrichment
Lakota Children’s Enrichment (LCE) empowers Oglala Lakota youth on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, located in three of the USA’s poorest counties. LCE provides opportunities for leadership, and amplifies youth voices by providing opportunities in the arts, literacy, sports, mentorship and community service, and by incorporating input from LCE’s Youth Advisory Board. LCE also provides education about the history of and obstacles facing American Indian reservations today. LCE identifies gaps and has provided schools and community organizations with over 20,000 books. Founded by SCC member Maggie Dunne as a teenager, LCE engages adults and youth around the world in service projects that support its mission. Click here to learn more about LCE.
