Pardon our dust, as we prepare to launch our new website and social media platforms!




WHAT WE DO

 

Partnering with executive volunteers, we train, coach, mentor, connect and inspire

non-profit CEOs
to lead well with limited resources, helping thousands of low-income youth

throughout the Greater Los Angeles region stay in school, out of trouble and

on track for a brighter future.


Through our City Scholars® Fellowship, the only tuition-free leadership training institute of its kind,

we help leaders with a heart improve their serve.

"The City Scholars® Fellowship teaches what defines an effective
non-profit and gives leaders concrete strategies to implement
that have an immediate impact. Since becoming a Fellow
in 2014, we've increased our revenues over 45% and

now educate 400 more youth each year."



Bill Thompson, Executive Director, Young Storytellers - City Scholars® Fellow

1,000 youth served/year (85% low-income) in Los Angeles, Culver City and Hollywood





WHY IT MATTERS

       

Children and youth living in under-resourced, high-poverty, urban communities depend upon

effective non-profit organizations for the education, academic support, mentoring

and creative enrichment they need to achieve against the odds. 
In turn, these much-needed,

community-based organizations depend for their success and survival upon

highly-motivated, extremely competent and well-connected leaders.



Yet, as demand increases and resources shrink, non-profit CEOs need more than creative

curriculum and a heart for helping low-income youth to keep the lights on and the doors open




To succeed in such a critically important, yet challenging and often lonely job,


non-profit CEOs need, but often cannot afford nor find through one program, exactly what our

City Scholars® Fellowship provides tuition-free:
practical and proven effective

leadership and business training, coaching, mentoring and networking opportunities.
