Christopher White, Future Leaders Today

Christopher White founded Future Leaders Today (FLT) out of a desire to give back to his community and reach out to those who are struggling, much like he did as a high school student.

Staying focused in school was not easy for Christopher and his academics suffered. Along the way he was fortunate to have guidance from concerned adults, which kept him grounded and committed to his academic future and dedicated to his personal and emotional wellbeing. Unfortunately, not all students have mentors in their lives, and the consequences can be tragic.

FLT is an after school mentoring program located in Greater Philadelphia that offers underprivileged and struggling teens hope for the future through training, networking opportunities and mentoring relationships.
