When: Sat., Dec. 21, 2-4 p.m. 2013
iLEAD - Institute for Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Academics and Development. A curriculum birthed out of Nancy Sung Shelton, a Mom of 3 young men of color. Battling against adversities, seen and unseen, she strived to create and realize success for her sons - in the midst of a world that didn't love them, a society that was working against them, and the Streets that was trying to claim them. The conversations that were had at iLEAD with the young "Masters", African American young men aged 15-20, have focused on reintroducing themselves to themselves as the powerful LEADERS and MEN that they are and will be. For 12 weeks, every Saturday morning, iLEAD and the Masters have met since September, 2013. Some of the young Masters roll out of bed, school, church, jobs, tending to their child, or off of the Block. It doesn't matter where they came from, it only matters where they are going, and iLEAD has been honored to contribute to each young man's journey!
