Save My Children Campaign

During the last twelve years, the D.L. Forbes Youth Foundation (DLFYF) has continued to grow and reach deep in the community to assist youth from all backgrounds. The “Save My Children Campaign” (SMCC) is not an ordinary Campaign. These were the words spoken to our founder from God. A vision set forth to unite the community to teach and train our children to be productive citizens.


The goal of “SMCC” is to build an academy that will provide leadership skills for the privileged as well as the underprivileged. The academy will include recreation, academics and leadership activities for our youth. These activities will be conducted at the Academy and Satellite locations.
