From Our Board

The 2nd Annual 21st Century Drug and Violence Prevention Training Conference concluded on March 1. Over 400 participants left energized and excited about L.E.A.D.'s direction and its expansion into other parts of the country.

At the conference, we launched our ON THE STREET Initiative. We are working to launch our online and academy training in May. Stay tuned for more info about this initiative!

The Board of Directors worked diligently to develop a new Critical Path Document to ensure the effective growth of the organization and maximize the expansion and resources we have available.

We're also proud to announce that we recently held trainings in New Jersey and certified over 25 new instructors!
