The CLBC Youth Leadership Programs seek to identify and help prepare the next generation to become community, business, governmental and non-profit organizational leaders in the African American community. The primary goal of the CLBC Youth Leadership Programs is to increase the pool of leaders to address pressing issues of education, poverty, crime, health and high mortality rates in the lower socioeconomic communities. We seek to address these problems by supporting, investing and encouraging high achievement in our youth.
The CLBC has been working to provide African American youth with opportunities that help educate and inspire our next generation of leaders. Education and training are core elements in furthering the CLBC goals of increasing African American participation and representation in all levels of government.
