Lafayette Kids


Lafayette Kids is a student organization that connects William & Mary students, “Bigs,” with young people, “Littles,” living in the Williamsburg area. Being part of Lafayette Kids, you can help conduct a wide range of youth development programming with the purpose of closing the opportunity gap.

Work with young people have been in and outside of the classroom.  You can contribute in seeking to support the development of young people by fostering a safe environment for growth through consistent mentorship and lasting relationships.  As a Big, you can help marginalized youth in the community navigate through challenging life transitions, grow confidence and independence, and even build your own toolbox for your personal development.  As a smaller program, we are actively looking for passionate and driven mentors like you to volunteer with us. 

We invite you to learn more and join us in supporting Williamsburg area students.
