ABOUT THE TORCH FOUNDATION

The Torch Foundation is commited to helping every teen reach their full potential by nurturing and improving their self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and leadership skills.

MISSION, VISION & HISTORY.

Our mission is to provide trainings the support teens with social-emotional intelligence and leadership tools that create self-awareness, resilience, coping and resolution skills to develop healthy relationships and success in life.

The Torch Foundation’s vision is a world of empowered, responsible, and confident teens.

By instilling compassion, confidence, and integrity in our youth, our goal is to create an ever-widening circle of leaders who create extraordinary results not only for themselves but also for their families and the world at large.

Today, The Torch Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization created in 2002 in Los Angeles, California and is run by a dedicated team of trainers, coaches, and volunteers, as well as its Board of Directors. We partner with donors, sponsors, and organizations, such as schools, youth centers, and religious or spiritual institutions, so that the trainings can be provided completely free of charge to teens.
