Inspiring and Empowering Minority Males to Become the Leaders of Tomorrow

The IDeaL Education Foundation provides minority males opportunities that enables them to excel and pursue leadership opportunities and be a part of the next generation of world leaders. Our leadership programs are designed to equip Black male youth with leadership skills, positive racial identity, and life skills for success.

Our Leadership Programs

As part of our efforts, we have established the Leadership Development Institute. Each year, the IDeaL Foundation sponsors several youth males from various backgrounds to participate in our Leadership Development Institute. We believe that these courageous, talented, and innovative individuals can take up the mantle of leadership. They can lead the rebuilding of American society in stabilizing community, eliminating racial injustice, and building a bright and promising future for our people.
