Live Out Loud Charity offers a unique experience for children, teens, and adults to give back to the community by becoming part of our Leadership Academy. The LOLC Leadership Academy offers guidance in speech development, interview training, and communication skills to further expand the individual’s message of hope. The goal is to turn a story of sadness or hardship into one of triumph and ultimately a story that can be shared in a public forum to inspire others.
