L.E.A.D.’s mission is to empower an at-risk generation to lead and transform their City of Atlanta by using the sport of baseball to teach Black boys how to overcome crime, poverty and racism.
L.E.A.D is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization operating in Atlanta, Georgia. Through our year-round Pathway2Empowerment Programming, we are inspiring and equipping Black males with the empowerment they need to live a life of significance L.E.A.D.’s Pathway2Empowerment is a year-round, six-year model that starts in the 6th grade. Young men are challenged with experiences across LEAD’s 4 Pillars of Excellence:
Athletics allows LEAD staff to build trusting relationships with members while teaching them leadership and life skills inherent in athletic development.
Academics: Because we target young men who are underperforming across grades, attendance, and behavior, academic success usually does not come easy for our young men. LEAD staff uses our young men’s love for the game of baseball to inspire them to compete academically.
Civic Engagement must become a part of one’s DNA in order to develop leaders who have a strong sense of responsibility and commitment to their families and communities. Members of LEAD complete over 2,000 hours of combined community service annually.
Commerce drives the social and economic culture of our communities and world. Having a seat at the table of commercial development is essential to effect positive growth for communities. Through strategic business partnerships, LEAD connects its members with the business community, creating a network and pipeline for future, diverse leadership.
