General School Mission

"The Leaguers, Inc. was founded in 1948 by Mary E. Burch and incorporated in 1949. The agency's mission for the past fifty years has been to enhance the quality of life for children and families through diverse programming that fosters self-growth, pride in one's community, personal empowerment and the attainment of self-sufficiency. We believe in opportunity through education.
In 1987, The Leaguers expanded its service area to include the Township of Irving ton. Although our programming has changed to address the needs of today's youth and families, our mission remains the same. The Leaguers has a documented history of preparing youth to take their rightful place in society as responsible adults.
The Leaguers serves approximately 1,313 clients per month. The agency provides various programs for children, families and community residents.
