Mission Statement

Leadership Initiatives (LI) approaches the problems of underdevelopment by empowering communities to address their own needs.

We partner with local government and sbusiness leaders to provide outstanding university students with entrepreneurial, leadership and project management training. These students then identify obstacles to development within their own communities, develop workable solutions, and create the community partnerships necessary to implement their solutions sustainably.

In the short term: Youth create solutions to local problems using existing community resources.

In the long term:We create honest, transparent generations of leaders who will empower entire nations.

Description

Leadership Initiatives (LI) renews democracies on a grassroots level by cultivating self-reliant leadership. We help individuals and communities forge the connections necessary to solve local problems using existing community resources. In the process we train a new generation of innovative, resourceful leaders poised to catapult their neighborhoods, regions, and nations forward.

Our students delve to the root of local issues and create novel solutions firmly grounded in principles of social entrepreneurship. Each design results in new profit-generating businesses that expand capacity on a human level. Vital services are made more accessible to the community while individual standards of living improve. And each enterprise serves as a model for similar initiatives in surrounding regions. Our community participants learn, do, and then teach others, creating an ever-expanding cycle of economic and personal growth.
