The LeaderShop



About Us

The LeaderShop empowers youth to become community-minded individuals through diverse programs that foster confidence, knowledge and leadership.

Since 1978, The LeaderShop has been providing a safe and welcoming environment for elementary through high
school aged youth. Programs offered include after school programs, junior high leadership programming, high school leadership, programming, mentoring, outreach/volunteer services, summer camp, and special community-based events.

Students are encouraged to express themselves by getting involved in some – or even all of the diverse programs which are designed to give youth the tools, confidence and passion to want to make a difference in their community.

Involvement in The LeaderShop changes lives – for the participants and residents of the neighborhoods served. The LeaderShop takes a preventative position in helping today’s youth grow into productive leaders in their communities.
