The Consortium Leadership Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to teaching leadership skills and empowering youth to lead. We do this by providing hands on training and financial assistance with partner organizations and through mentoring and scholarship to ensure the next generation of leaders are being inspired to change the world.
The Harris Scholars Program was named for the late Drs. Rudolph and Janette Hoston Harris. This scholarship provides funds through various organizations and universities.
It includes general scholarships, endowed funds, book scholarships, and general gifts.
We annually award $10,000 in scholarships.
Leadership skills are vital in today’s society and to break into the industry, they are a mandatory requirement. During the summit our goal is to help the YLS participants learn to develop a greater understanding of how the entertainment industry works, discuss the characteristics of leadership, and be prepared for what it takes to be successful in the entertainment industry. With a combination of dynamic speakers and engaging interactive activities, YLS students will gain understanding of how the entertainment industry works and learn about possible career paths in this exciting and ever changing industry.
The YLS Institute is a unique program that creates opportunities for participants to get practical experience in three areas, film/tv production, music production and event production.
The Institute students will have an opportunity to work on and oversee a live performance event project. Over the course of several months students will be mentored by professionals as they work collectively to create, plan, and execute a special live event project.
High school students sponsored by CLF with former interns working together at the NAACP Image Awards.
