The Emerging Leaders Program
As a student at Morehouse College, our founder Grant Bennett, created the pilot version of Emerging Leaders to assist underclassmen transition into leadership roles on campus. In the spring of 2020, the program was awarded the The Andrew Young Center for Global Leadership Social Justice and Leadership Innovation Award. With the success of the program at Morehouse, Grant worked with Dr. David Wall-Rice to establish a curriculum suited for high school students and brought the program to Fayetteville.
The Emerging Leaders Leadership Development Program is a leadership, character and professional development exposure opportunity designed for marginalized high school student athletes in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Selected students complete year-round projects utilizing the Identity, Art, and Democracy Lab’s curriculum for social impact. The group is led once a month in person by expert professionals within the Two-Six Project network in a day-long immersive experience. In part of our partnership with Google, all students gain access to learn from the Google Career Certificates platform.
