L.E.A.D.’s mission is to empower an at risk generation to lead and transform their city – Atlanta. L.E.A.D. is successfully living out its mission and is having an amazing impact in the lives of the youth that we serve in Atlanta Public Schools. Over the last seven years and beginning with our first class of graduating Ambassadors (2008), L.E.A.D. Ambassadors have graduated from high school at a rate of 100% and gone on to college at a rate of 95%.

Results like this are only sustainable if we have the community supporting our student-athletes. If you are looking for a way to serve that will have significant impact, then we need you to S.I.T. which stands for Simple, Intentional and Transformative.
Here’s what we need you to do:
S – It’s Simple. Simply attend one of our Middle School Character Development League games this spring. View our calendar of events at Lead2Legacy.org and commit to a game today.
I – Be Intentional. Commit to staying at least 3 innings and let your voice be heard. Cheer on the teams as they play their hearts out in front of a packed crowd.
T – Transformative. By simply being intentional, you will have a transformative effect in the lives of the young men on the field. To look into the bleachers and see cheering fans will make our young men feel valued and loved. Your encouragement will lead to their empowerment.
