Camp Lead-Up (CLU) is a summer Institute held on selected college campuses designed to change, challenge and charge our youth. Through our leadership, character and career development based curriculum, students will begin proactive preparation for their careers and roles in leadership of tomorrow. CLU equips students with the necessary tools and confidence needed to close the achievement gap and be stand out members of their schools and their communities. The camp gives them a boost in confidence through interactive seminars and community service. CLU touches on life lessons and skills typically missed in the classroom. Our Leadership Institute Curriculum is a culmination of over 13 years of workshops, seminars and sessions on youth empowerment, service and leadership. 


Sessions for the Week Include:
● Academic Achievement
● Speaking/Presentation Skills
● Character Development
● Self-Awareness/African American History
● Community Service

● STEAM Exploration
● Financial Literacy

We believe all children can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
