Come along as we harness the power of horses to transform lives. Our partnership with the Cleveland Mounted Police Unit allows us to offer inner city kids unique equestrian experiences that build character and self-confidence while teaching responsibility, compassion, and trust. We are LUCK, and we want to show you what happens when a kid meets a horse. It’s who we are and what we do.
Please RSVP by October 13th: firstname.lastname@example.org
Leg Up for Cleveland’s Kids, known as “LUCK,” addresses multiple challenges facing Cleveland’s vulnerable youth. A shortage of extracurricular and career-readiness activities, coupled with strained relations between community members and authority figures, negatively impacts young people’s ability to create viable and sustaining futures. Through riding and caring for horses, program participants acquire valuable job-training and social-emotional skills that prepare them for success. A partnership with Cleveland’s Mounted Unit offers unprecedented collaboration and community engagement, while immersion in the equestrian industry allows Cleveland youth access to previously unreachable social capital and career pathways.
LUCK seeks to positively contribute to the development of Cleveland’s youth through equine activities. LUCK envisions a generation of empowered, educated, and self-motivated young adults who demonstrate empathy, critical thinking, and commitment to personal growth. Daily interaction with horses and adult mentors creates consistent, caring relationships, enabling participants to become confident, capable, healthy and engaged citizens.
