Our Mission

The Land Garcia Foundation invests in youth by providing leadership training, coaching, and support to help them succeed in college, their careers and beyond. In partnership with established youth programs and academies in California, we support each young person’s vision for their future, help them discover their authentic voice and style, and show them how to effectively use these skills to advance in life.

Our Beliefs

Everyone has talent and leadership potential.

Youth with strong leadership and communication skills will get in and ahead in their field of choice.

Something magical happens when we share our authentic stories and others can relate to our personal truth.

People who have overcome barriers and shattered glass ceilings are motivated to help others do the same.

We have the power to create a more just and tolerant society.
