Life Directions is a Detroit-based organization whose mission is to motivate young adults, ages 13-35, to mature into responsible, productive adults through self-direction.
According to Founder Fr. John Phelps, C.s.s.R, their vital work began in 1973 with five young adults who inspired each other to be faithful to the mission of “Peers Inspiring Peers through Forgiving”.
Today, critical mentors who are rooted in their values, including peers and grandparent figures, mentor others who lack people of wisdom in their lives. Through mentorship these challenged individuals are encouraged to be self-responsible and balanced, and in turn they are inspired to be involved with others for the sake of the next generation.
