Banister’s Leadership Academy’s mission is to strengthen youth and their families through empowerment, enrichment, and extended academic success. Focused on teaching youth leadership, life, and social skills in which they can plan, manage and organize a successful life.
Banister’s Leadership Academy was founded in 2007 and incorporated in 2008. Banister’s Leadership Academy was founded by Mr. Akile Banister and his wife. Banister’s Leadership Academy is now serving over 1000 youth and their families, and that number will continue to grow as the need for our services becomes necessary. Leadership became the guiding values of our organization, its initiatives, projects and services. Additional programs, such as Friday Night Lights (FNL), the Douglas County Youth Correctional Center Ambassador Council (DCYC), North and South Omaha Youth Leadership Advocacy Boards (YALB), served over 100 youth and families.
