LEADERS OF EXCELLENCE

Problem: The transition to adulthood can be a challenging experience for anyone, regardless of personal background, socioeconomic status, gender, identity, or race. It is certainly more challenging for youth who do not have the economic, familial, or social supports that can assist them to overcome the many challenges on their journey to self-sufficiency and independence. Leaders of Excellence (LOE) serves as a bridge between circumstances and a brighter future for children, particularly teens who would be otherwise at a disadvantage. Leaders of Excellence equips At-Risk and Disadvantaged youth with Skills, Resources, and Technical assistance needed to be Healthy, Socially Conscious, Self-Sufficient Adults. Our Life Skill programs provide a safety net and support network for transition age youth in Jefferson County.

Solution: We believes today's youth have the power to transform themselves, their communities, and the world around them.
