Be a Leader Foundation

The Be a Leader Foundation designs programs that provide a positive learning environment and college focus for each participant to develop their high-school and college educational plans. The Foundation works directly with middle-school and high-school students in primarily inner-city schools to engage them in the active development of their self esteem, leadership skills, and long-term preparation of their plans. Selected programs include Be A Leader Institute Elementary for 7th-grade students; the Valedictorian Club for 8th-grade students; Be A Leader Institute for high-school students; Be A Leader clubs; and college summer internships.

Year Founded: 2002
Geographic Focus: Statewide (programs are currently only in Maricopa County, with intent to expand to other communities)
