Overview

There are unique challenges that negatively impact the quality of life in the African American community. While the challenges are complex they are not insurmountable. The Indige Leaders program prepares African American high school students to be leaders that transform their community. Youth who participate will gain a greater sense of self and understand how they can utilize their talents to enhance the quality of life in the African American community. Through four, six month institutes youth will be exposed to culturally sensitive workshops, presenters, projects and events that will inspire them to make a positive impact in the African American community.
