Leadership Academy

From the School House to the White House Leadership Academy serves to transform lives through a nine month experiential leadership program. The young ladies from King Drew Magnet, Crenshaw, Dorsey, Middle College and Washington Preparatory High Schools are prepared for the challenges that lie ahead of them, by empowering them with the educational tools needed for secondary education and guidance needed to address social issues.  The students are also provided with scholarships to attend college and they have an opportunity to travel to Atlanta, GA. Seattle, WA, San Francisco, CA, Sacramento, CA, or Washington, D.C., after completing two years in the leadership academy.
