Triple Threat Mentoring is a non-profit organization that strives to empower under-resourced youth and help them develop confidence, character and life skills. Triple Threat, which has six full-time staff members, is based in Aurora but also runs programs and events in the City of Chicago.
Triple Threat Mentoring was founded in the fall of 2007 by East Aurora resident, Caleb Luper. Formerly on staff with Global Outreach Ministries, Caleb facilitated short term mission trips and sports camps in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. His global experience and faith fed his passion to serve under-privileged kids in his own community.
Poverty, drug trafficking, crime, and illiteracy present significant challenges in the youth we serve. Many of the kids we serve come from low-income households with limited opportunities for growth and development. Depleted resources for education, extra-curricular activities, staffing and leadership leave youth disadvantaged and at-risk.
