Lance D’Antignac

Professional Mentor, Metro-South Los Angeles

In the later years of his youth, Lance developed a strong affinity for younger children. His first job as a camp counselor showed him that he had much to offer the youth he worked with. It also showed him how much we, as adults, can learn from the nature of children. This is a significant factor in what led him to pursue work that caters to kids. He finds working with children one of the most rewarding and fulfilling ways to spend his time.

Having received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from UCLA with a minor in Global Health, he became increasingly aware of the many disparities in low-income communities. During his time in college, Lance researched Maternal & Child Health and participated in internships that provided kids with educational and health resources to help improve their life outcomes. Coming out of college, he knew he wanted to do meaningful work that would allow him serve his community. Lance believes one of the best ways to improve the community is to invest time, support, and resources into the children, which is what his role at Friends of the Children - Los Angeles is about!
