Program Description

We're building the foundation for today's youth of color to become tomorrow's leaders. Our signature program, the MJYF Leadership Academy , engages metro Atlanta's public high school students of color in two years of intensive training in the skills and principles of leadership, critical thinking, entrepreneurship, communication, and community service. We additionally guide our scholar leaders to ensure they not only graduate high school on time, they also matriculate to the college of their choice well-prepared to succeed.
