Training For Results!

As a community mentor and product of several leadership programs, Lonnie R. Bridges Sr. became concerned that there were​ no pathways to prepare youth to be effective leaders within both mainstream society and their respective cultural groups. By engaging youth and adults in age-appropriate analysis of leadership and culture, we position them not only as leaders in their own communities, but as leaders in the process of changing how we think about management.
