Hello Interested Leaders,

America On Track’s Emerging Leaders for Civic Engagement program is a multi-faceted after-school program to inspire today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders. This is achieved through training in leadership and public speaking skills, a focus on future careers including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), fitness & nutrition, drug use prevention, exposure to the arts and involvement in community engagement.

The Emerging Leaders for Civic Engagement (ELCE) program is about developing future leaders, providing life-transforming opportunities and creating life-long volunteers! The program has a 27-year science-based track record and was awarded the Presidential Service Award for Outstanding Services to Youth in 1999. ELCE has evolved over the years while teaming up with educators, civic leaders, outstanding high school students, and elementary school children.

Additionally, ELCE offers a nurturing synergistic forum for all participants to enjoy developing strong public speaking skills, have fun, meet new friends and also develop a love of volunteering.

This program is a great way to receive volunteer hours, letters of recommendation, and scholarships!!

Mission Statement

America On Track, an award-winning nonprofit organization, was founded in 1995 and serves more than 44,000 Orange County children and families. Please check out our website: www.AmericaOnTrack.org for more information. America On Track’s mission is to inspire brighter futures by building youth leaders, supporting families, and strengthening communities through life-transforming programs.


Since 2004, America On Track has been successfully implementing a unique and comprehensive Brighter Futures for Children of Prisoners program (one of many programs).

The program provides multi-faceted components that encompass the following: STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) workshops, a "College Is For Me Too!" summer education camp, adult mentoring & training, nutrition education sessions, free age-appropriate books, special events and wrap-around services for the family.

This holistic approach helps children of prisoners set goals for the future to reduce potential involvement in the juvenile justice system and live rewarding lives.
