Our Mission

Learning Illumination Center’s mission is to educate and elevate student-athletes to become future leaders by offering learning opportunities for them and the adults in their lives.


About Us

We believe that all student-athletes deserve to have access to information that will help them secure a promising future. Created as the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of APLS Group, a leadership and talent development firm, Learning Illumination Center offers interactive workshops on life skills, college/career planning, and professional development to student-athletes in middle school through college. We also provide workshops for coaches, educators, and parents of student-athletes.

Our team is made up of former educators, experienced trainers, and certified consultants. We are dedicated to giving back to the education community by offering opportunities for professional development.

Learning Illumination Center workshops are funded through fundraising events, grants, and the generous contributions of businesses and individuals. We also partner with other nonprofit organizations to share resources and expand our reach. Learning Illumination Center is not affiliated with any college or recruiting organization. We welcome the opportunity to share our expertise! Please contact us today for more information.
