  • Mentoring
    • The LUK Mentoring Program appreciates the support of the business community. We would be happy to present the program to employees as an opportunity to volunteer as a positive role model. Businesses are also welcome to support our fundraising efforts by riding or contributing to the LUK Rodman Ride for Kids team, which is a non-competitive bicycle ride that takes place in September. Sponsorship and donation opportunities are available to help support our Kids at Heart Mentoring Gala which is held in February and includes both live and silent auctions. Becoming a member of the Mentoring Advisory Board is another way that businesses can get involved.
