The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
The Leaders for Life Mentoring Program is a one on one program designed to develop middle school (ages 11-14) males from the urban community into future leaders committed to excellence in character, service and academic excellence.
Leaders for Life, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded by a native resident of the city of Newark and educator in the Newark Public School System. At LFL, we work daily to ensure that residents have ample exposure to educational resources that exist within the community. We seek to become partners with individuals in their desire to succeed academically, professionally and personally.
We have over 30 combined years of suc-cessful experience working with residents in the city of Newark and Essex County.

Leaders For Life is a program willing to implement innovative programs to affect student outcomes in a positive way. We set high expectations at LFL and we’re concerned with the success of every single student. It’s an exciting time for education right now, in Newark and nationally. If you are passionate about opening doors to kids, I couldn’t think of a greater opportunity.

My favorite part of the program was being able to build strong friendships - not only with the students, but with other mentors as well.
When you decide to mentor someone, you really have no way of knowing how far they’ll go. Whether you shape the next great entrepreneur of our time or help someone achieve there dreams, you'll make a difference -- and that's all that matters.
