Our Mission & Values
The Stentorians of LA County is dedicated to recruiting and promoting diversity within the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD). Since inception we have provided support to thousands of individuals interested in the fire service.
The Stentorians function as an incorporated 501(c)4, community based organization for African-American fire personnel and their families. Many of the traditions that started over thirty years ago continue today including: mentoring community engagement, community outreach, career counseling, and training.
The Stentorians organization has become a well noted and respected organization in the community.
Although training and development are at the core of our operation, we are first responsible to the residents living in the surrounding neighborhoods around the center. Located within the heart of South Los Angeles, it is imperative that the community is served and provided outreach programs not easily accessible to them. Community engagement is the driving force behind what we stand for.
