Le Aumaga was founded by Justin Kalolo and Fraser Tauaivale in May of 2016 with the intent to promote higher education and fuel the academic and personal growth of young Samoan men. Le Aumaga’s mission is to support the development of self-sufficient, self-reliant, and village-oriented young Samoan men. Our efforts have reached the local Samoan youth within the low-income neighborhoods of the San Bernardino, Orange, and Los Angeles Counties respectively. We assist the youth in their pursuit of academic excellence by providing near peer mentoring, intentional bi-weekly gatherings, culture-based workshops, and serving their basic needs (food, school supplies, etc.).
