Mission and Vision
To liberate human potential in challenged communities, I-LEAD strengthens leadership
and creates breakthrough learning via innovative curriculum,
access to higher education and charter schools.
I-LEAD Accomplishes its Mission in Three Ways:
- We help our students build and practice a repertoire of important leadership skills—the skills entailed in effective dialogue, negotiation, creative leadership, systems thinking, speaking as a leader, and ethical leadership.
- We help our students master certain bodies of supplemental information required for effective leadership, including knowledge of public systems, private systems, political leadership, group dynamics, and understanding technology.
- We assist our students, partners and clients in envisioning and achieving tangible community-based leadership initiatives, in the areas of community leadership, education, community health, and technology proficiency.

What Students are Saying
ACE gave me the opportunity to start/restart college. It is convenient and affordable. It changed my life. Even though I had many struggles, I was determined to graduate and show other students that they can do this too.
Starting school again since I dropped out was really weird to me…throughout all my situations no one gave up on me. No one judged me for being twenty and trying to make a difference in life. They guided me; they showed me how I shouldn’t be ashamed, I should be proud of myself.
It’s been a way to follow in his footsteps. I have dreams, everyone has dreams, and I would like to accomplish them, and I know this is the way to do it, by going through education. It’s been a way to do what I have to do to succeed.
