What is Cultural Leadership?

Cultural Leadership is a youth education and leadership nonprofit organization. Based in St. Louis, we are dedicated to creating a more just community by developing area youth to be the next generation of civil rights leaders.

Our mission is to create a more just and equitable community by educating middle school, high school and college students to recognize and resolve issues of privilege and injustice through the lens of the African American and Jewish experience.
