African American Leadership Society
Lots of people of other races volunteer, but few African Americans do. Our children need to see us supporting them. Giving our time and presence to young people is one of the most important gifts we can share. - Florence Moore Williams, Ernst & Young LLP
Our community's youth deserve every opportunity we can afford them. That is what members of the African American Leadership Society believe and strive for, working together to inspire local kids to stay in school, pursue excellence and have strong, successful futures.
Founded in 2001, the African American Leadership Society has impacted many young lives in recent years, due in large part to members' work at the Oak Cliff Boys & Girls Club. In just a few short years, society members have held a back-to-school rally and supplies giveaway, a 10-week character development course and a mentoring program.
