Changing ideals and creating opportunities

                                              for the youth and community


ABC Elite Leadership Academy (AELA)

The Leadership Academy is a life changing program that provides constructive alternatives, life skills and leadership skills that prepare youth facing poverty, lack of role models and limited experiential exposure. AELA empowers students to be: proactive, critical thinkers, effective communicators, and problem solvers. The leadership series includes team building, community service, conflict resolution, network building, financial literacy, educational planning and professional etiquette. These experiences will be used to transition our students into career shadowing opportunities and into colleges to facilitate their success and obtain their dreams.
