Cultural Leadership is a nonprofit youth educational and leadership development organization that exists to develop a generation of socially aware, culturally conscious youth leaders. We challenge local middle and high school students in the St. Louis region to learn more about social justice issues and how to solve them in their communities, workplaces, and schools.
We train high school area youth over a year long program, to stand up, speak out, and take action. Students learn about our country’s civil rights history, Jewish and African American history and cultures, and develop the skills to be agents of change. We expose middle school youth to similar concepts to provide them with experiences, leadership skills, and how to develop their ideas for change. And, we now train college students, through our summer internship program, to take on leadership roles in our community's corporations, and nonprofit organizations.
