Kenvin's service year put him on a pathway to college

We’re thrilled to be able to share the story of Kenvin Lacayo, who took his future into his own hands and seized an opportunity to transform his life.

Kenvin was unsure of his options after high school. Fortunately, he was introduced to a service year at The Literacy Lab’s Leading Men Fellowship, an experience that shaped his future. His service year allowed him to help others and make an impact in his community — all while paving a pathway to higher education.

Kenvin shines a light on what is possible when every young person in America — no matter their background — is empowered with the opportunity to engage in service.

Service Year Alliance is honored to partner with the Schultz Family Foundation to highlight Kenvin and share his story to inspire young people, communities, and public and private sector leaders across the country. Everyone has a role to play in expanding service opportunities for all young Americans.
