We create safe and supportive, trauma-informed youth-centered spaces for developing empathy and empowering it into action. Our programs empower kids to become actively engaged in social issues in their community and beyond. Involvement in service and volunteering helps build compassion, self-awareness and social connection – the building blocks for healthy social and emotional growth. We help young people find their unique ability to make a difference in the world; to be beacons of hope and change; to be the light and lead the way.

House Concerts

Ben’s Lighthouse regularly presents intimate house concerts with rock & roll celebrities and folk legends. These fundraisers provide a unique opportunity to hear these artists up close and personal. Check out some of the past concerts and upcoming shows in our House Concert Series.


We no longer provide outreach as an active program but are proud of our past projects and are thankful for the opportunity to help others throughout the country. View our past Outreach trips and video tributes to the communities we visited.
