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.
The African American Leaders for Tomorrow (AALT), program will be held this year from July 8 – 11, 2020, on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills. During this four-day residential summer program, Ninety students are hand selected to receive intense leadership training and workshops on topics such as the legislative process and civic engagement. Housing, meals, program materials, as well as transportation during the conference will be provided at no cost to the participants. For students living outside of Los Angeles and Riverside Counties, transportation to the conference will also be provided from a central location based on where you live.
