Located across multiple states, the the Leaders of Tomorrow program seeks to provide immigrant youth with community leadership and advocacy training. Students are high-school-aged and meet regularly to collaborate and grow, though due to COVID restrictions, they currently meet via Zoom. The current class of 2021 sees 26 out of 30 students graduating, signifying the willingness of the youth involved and the dedication of IEL to their stated mission. The curriculum is intense and requires commitment from interested youth, and is broken up into four units.
