History

La Belle Foundation is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1980 whose objective is to bring the teaching of self-esteem, self-development and personal and social responsibility to public school students without charge.

The organization, also known as the Self-Esteem Learning Foundation (S.E.L.F.) is based on La Belle Professional training School’s experience (1963-1991) in training students to overcome some of the more unfortunate aspects of adolescence; feelings of ineptness, unattractiveness and insignificance. S.E.L.F. recognizes that these feelings can be dealt with through training, but that many students, who may need the training most, cannot afford it.
