Project Description

National Black MBA Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) Program

The LOT program is a national network sponsored by the National Black MBA Association and consists of a network of middle and high school students, MBAs, other advance degrees, entrepreneurs, as well as other eminent professionals eager to participate in educating, mentoring and providing exposure to students as they make critical (post-high school graduation) decisions regarding their academic careers and their future. LOT’s mission is to develop positive, socially aware, teenage professionals by providing these students with essential leadership skills required to obtain scholarships, financial aid, college admission and career development opportunities.

For more than a decade, this challenging program has had a stimulating influence on students. These students may have exhibited leadership potential, but require additional motivation, people, and influential factors in their lives to realize, and then capitalize on their full potential.

Over the course of the year (September through June), students will get the opportunity to participate in programs that will help stimulate their intellectual, economic growth and community service participation. This program will offer students the opportunity to grow and develop with the support and guidance of successful business professionals.

First Flight Venture Center has been a partner with the Leaders of Tomorrow Program hosting the twice-monthly meetings from September to June at its facility as the students prepare for the national competition.
