We have 4 Future Leaders Programs: Future Leaders Mentoring, Generation Girls Mentoring, Future Leaders Ready Now Career Readiness and Future Leaders Ready Now Life Skills.


These programs are a direct response to the growing number of youth who lack social skills due to the impact of trauma in their daily lives as well as the lives of their parents, family, communities, and school staff members who work to support their continuous learning and ongoing development. We offer a positive support system to assist students in becoming great future leaders within their communities.


To support our current climate, The Movement Team Mentors are trained and certified in Restorative Practices and the Effective use of Restorative Circles by a Certified IIRP Trainer. In addition, they are educated in the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) by an ACES Master Trainer. Our Mentors help students move forward and set personal and educational goals that support their efforts to successfully transition to their next academic phase.

Our programs measure performance via protective factors and have successfully demonstrated its effectiveness by reducing social isolation and enhancing collective empowerment in communities and youth.
