Youth Leadership Initiative 

The Brotherhood's signature program is its Youth Leadership Initiative. It focuses on developing the "personal" leadership capacity of teenage boys.  Our primary goal is to facilitate the leadership, character, and intellectual development of young boys in a manner that impacts their transition to manhood in a positive and productive manner.  We value the lives of our young boys and will work to see that they grow into respectful, productive, and responsible young men who are academically successful, serve their communities and take responsibility for their personal conduct and development. 
In other words, LEAD!

Personal Leadership

“Personal leadership is the self-confident ability to crystalize your thinking and establish an exact direction for your own life, to commit yourself to moving in that direction, and then to take determined action to acquire, accomplish, or become whatever you identify as the ultimate goal in your life.”
