Over the years LEF has taken on the challenge of directly meeting local social needs head on, and underpinning that work with a fee for service financial model. This challenge has meant we have engaged in many enterprises over the years, including the following.
LEF Wood Works vaulted "at risk" youth back to school or into employment through the production of custom made pine furniture.
LEFonline enabled individuals to practice their newly learned IT Skills within a full-fledged Internet Service Provider (ISP) business.
Today our Food Services enterprise continues to thrive. Our Events Department ensures grassroots learning and relationship building while also providing first class national professional development opportunities.
Our Bicycle Assembly and Maintenance program (BAM) and other skills advancement work, with the accompanying funding through LEF's unique Community Skills Development Fund (CSDF), and our child care services continue to meet needs that would otherwise go unmet.
