Creating A New Reality

GET TO KNOW US

At YBLA, we develop young black leaders to have a positive impact in their community and beyond. We focus on helping our young people become leaders that are college and career ready. As our young leaders strive to succeed, they are trained to reach back and mentor elementary, middle and high school students. We achieve our goals through Leadership, Service and Education.

TWO MAJOR PROGRAMS

Ambassadors & YLeader Program

YBLA have two major programs  (Ambassadors & YLeader) specifically designed to address the unique needs of our young leaders.

AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

Shaping leaders of today and tomorrow.

The YBLA Ambassador program is the organization’s flagship platform.  Ambassadors are the face of the organization, personifying our commitment to student leadership, service, and education.  The selection process for the program is highly competitive. We identify high school juniors with a GPA of 3.0 or higher who demonstrate leadership and participate in community service.

YLEADER PROGRAM

Building a Better Future through College and Career Readiness.

The new YLeader program is a competitive leadership program  that includes individual and team challenges, points, and awards. The purpose is to provide leadership training to our young black leaders in a fun and interactive way. This model will allow students to become empowered and equipped to  directly impact their peers and community.
