Summer Youth Leadership Institute
African and American Friendship, Inc. “Youth Leadership Institute” was established in response to the critical needs of the at-risk, low income, disadvantaged children and youth in Boston’s challenging neighborhoods.

The purpose of the program is to offer a curriculum of learning opportunities designed specially to assist low income, at-risk disadvantaged children and youth in developing leadership skills necessary to understand and effect changes within governmental, educational and social service Institutions.

It is important for low income, at-risk disadvantaged children and youth in Boston’s challenging neighborhoods to have an alternative program out of the school environment. Our agency Youth Leadership Institute program serve as an alternative to being in gangs. In addition, the program also provide Inner City children and youth with useful skills and an educational experience, which might encourage them to pursue and help them gain access to further their education on a college level.

Youth leadership is an ongoing process, in which young people are engaged in building the skills, attitudes, knowledge, and experiences that prepare them for the present and the future. Our Summer Youth Leadership Institute goals and objectives are
1. To develop and offer a curriculum of workshops and seminars aimed at cultivating and strengthening leadership skills and empowerment.
2. Provide short-term training that will develop skills in how to work with bureaucratic agencies, how to serve on community board/councils and how to identify community goals and objectives.
