About Us

Leadership and Education is all about helping our young people stay in school and on the pathway to graduation.

– Chris "Ludacris" Bridges

Through workshops, mentoring, educational support and rewarding experiences, The Ludacris Foundation connects with vulnerable and disconnected youth.


We believe that every young person should know that their lives matter and they have the opportunity to live their dreams. The Foundation’s Leadership and Education Program provides youth with the tools and self-confidence to make career choices that match their passion.


The funding support of “The Grass Is Always Greener” Celebrity Golf Tournament and all of our other fundraising initiatives fuels our success. We thank all those who continue to help us to connect with our young people to build stronger families and communities.
