Mission Statement

The Mission of Cultural Leadership is to create a more just and equitable community by educating middle and high school students to recognize and resolve issues of privilege and injustice through the lens of the African American and Jewish experience. Our motto is that when our students see a problem, they are to grab an ally or two or three, roll up their sleeves, and get to work creating a world of inclusion and equality.

Description

Cultural Leadership is a youth education and leadership nonprofit organization. Based in St. Louis, we are dedicated to creating a more just community by training area youth to be the next generation of civil rights leaders.

We train middle and high school area youth to stand up, speak out, and take action. Students learn about our country’s history of systematic oppression, then about Jewish and African American vibrant cultures of resilience and enduring histories of resistance. Then they carry the torch of their elders as they develop the skills to be agents of change.

We support our alumni in continuing the work in the professional sphere by arranging paid summer internships in St. Louis organizations that work on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
