LEADERS OF THE FREE WORLD
Leaders of the Free World(LFW) is an international experiential learning and leadership development program aimed at social intervention for young black men. The program focuses on using the LFW curriculum, mentorship, and international experience to increase self-efficacy and improve achievement outcomes in participants.
The program is designed to prepare for personal and professional success while building a cohort of community leaders, entrepreneurs, and mentors. LFW incorporates a pre-and post-departure curriculum that targets social and psychological barriers to leadership by tapping into the participant's potential. We encourage young men to reach beyond perceived boundaries to discover the "Free World" that comes from taking on new challenges and a process of self-discovery.
