what is leaders of tomorrow?

​Leaders of Tomorrow®is a high school mentorship program (Grades 9-12) designed to expose minority youth to African American business professionals and assist in identifying positive career and educational options. In addition to high school students, the Charlotte Chapter welcomes Jr. LOT (middle school students) to participate in monthly sessions. The LOT program provide students a head start on their future as a professional with participation in monthly workshops throughout the school year on Academic and College Preparation, Professional Development, Leadership Development and Community Service. Activities include session topics such as Presentation Skills, Goal Setting & Time Management, Financial Literacy & Skills and Business Etiquette. 

LOT helps young people learn both how to prepare to take advantage of and create opportunities. They are exposed to different ways of thinking, different cultures, diverse career fields, numerous colleges, and people who have achieved greatness. In the process, future leaders discover that whatever they want to accomplish in life is within their grasp, as long as they have the discipline, courage, assertiveness, and skill to make it happen.
