Since 1978, The LeaderShop (formerly CEP Youth Leadership, Inc.) has been providing a safe and welcoming environment for elementary through high school aged youth. Programs offered range from mentoring and leadership to performance groups, outreach/volunteer services and special community-based events. Students are encouraged to express themselves by getting involved in some – or even all of the diverse programs which are designed to give youth the tools, confidence and passion to want to make a difference in their community. Involvement in The LeaderShop changes lives – for the participants and residents of the neighborhoods served. The LeaderShop takes a preventative position in helping today’s youth grow into productive leaders in their communities.
