What makes TLT different?
TLT- Tomorrow’s Leaders Today, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit youth leadership program that is putting the focus on real life soft-skills, civic responsibility, and career and leadership skills.
Throughout Texas, we work in person with 5th grade and older participants, mostly in underserved, economically challenged situations, to integrate their career path/goals, while developing leadership qualities and real-life skills. Engagement with business, civic, and community leaders that are aligned with the participant’s career choice leads to more meaningful connections.
The selection of the class facilitator, mentors, retreats, internships and community service projects foster these relationships. The participant will learn how to be a self-sufficient community member and leader in any career they choose.
We would be honored to have Veterans who would like an opportunity to join us and put their mentoring and leadership skills into action or participate in an internship position.
