History

In 2008, the Ambassadors of Compassion (AOC) Leadership Program was created by Lift Up America to equip youth with resiliency and the personal leadership skills to navigate and succeed through life's inevitable challenges. It is designed to teach the critical life principles that every person should know and incorporate into their life in order to reach their full potential.

"As a mother of two boys, it's important for me to volunteer my time to causes such as AOC, as I strive to do what I can to help children grow, learn and be loved."
