Posted by At the Well Conferences on March 12, 2019

Applications are now open for the 2019 summer leadership programs. Please go to to learn more about the opportunities for students! All programs are open to students across the United States and internationally. These programs were created out of a commitment to equip young minority women and men with the essential tools required to aid them in becoming successful leaders.

Programs feature:

  • Critical writing and reading classes
  • Small group discussion
  • Leadership workshops
  • Self-awareness/motivational presentations

Our goal is to nurture and cultivate tomorrow’s leaders through achieving the following goals. As a result of attending the programs, scholars will:

  • Increase academic achievement and motivation in school
  • Attain higher confidence on standardized tests
  • Engage in extracurricular school activities
  • Seek opportunities for community service and engagement

Key features of the Academy are the interactive workshops and the dynamic motivational speakers. Workshop topics include financial literacy, body image, self-development, scholarship boot camp, and health and wellness. Past celebrity guests include actors Danny Glover, Delroy Lindo, Nicole Ari Parker, Boris Kodjoe, Brian White, Yandy Smith, Jasmine Guy; motivational speakers Brandi Harvey and Karli Harvey; scholar Dr. Julianne Malveaux; 2016 DNC Chief Leah Daughtry; plus-size supermodel Liris Crosse, and business leaders Lisa Ascolese and Terrie Williams.
