Leaders of the Free World
The project operates as a year-long global perspective and professional development program, that provides international exposure, while expanding each participant’s leadership capacity.
Currently, African-American men make up less than 1% of students who study abroad or receive international experience. In a more globalized society, LFW recognizes the imperative for young leaders to gain a broader understanding of the world and themselves.
LFW’s goal is to create a network of leaders whose development impacts their own lives, their communities, and the world; grooming the next generation of changemakers.
