Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village Leadership Academy
Why do we need a "Youth Leadership Academy?
The answer, "To break the cycle of disappointment, lack of hope and violence and the negative barriers that impact the Flint Youth on a daily basis."
The Sylvester Broome Empowerment Center will focus on the issues that plague youth and their families by providing a safe harbor and alternatives to gangs, drugs and violence.
