What is an INDIGENOUS LEADER?
A young person raised in the urban community who has shown the desire to be taught in a seemingly unteachable environment possesses the fortitude to lead in a positive manner even when it seems no one is following and has the audacity to shine or reflect light in the midst of darkness.
INDIGENOUS LEADERSHIP – Our goal is to empower leaders within urban neighborhoods to change their communities for Christ. Because of this, leadership development is knitted into all of our programming and methodology. Students who are empowered to stand up as leaders and equipped with the tools to do so will change their community.
STUDENT INTERNSHIP – Resources for students to help prepare them for the workforce and to explore possible vocations (mock interview prep, Internships, professional dress, business etiquette, resumé building, financial literacy, and career development).
CORE – Teams of students meet weekly with adult coaches who, together, follow Jesus in a way that naturally invites friends to discover Jesus with them.
There’s something special about coming around the family table to eat. We intentionally engage with youth around a family-style meal Monday – Thursday, where we have relevant conversations about current events.
Striving to improve the education of urban scholars. We provide tutoring, study tables, goal setting and collaborations with local colleges to assist our urban scholars down the path of educational success.
SCHOLAR SUCCESS PLAN – Help set measurable and winnable goals for education success.
