Emerge- The Art of Leadership – Emerge- The Art of Leadership

Date grant awarded: August 29, 2019

Emerge- The Art of Leadership is an initiative in Charlotte, North Carolina whereby youth are developed into confident, mindful, and compassionate leaders of the future. Our focus is to teach students self-defense, both in life and on the training floor, by giving them the tools needed to prepare for the challenges they will face in their schools and community.

Through martial arts instruction, meditation, and project-based leadership training events, Emerge will work with the community to provide youth programming that is dynamic and engaging and uplifts that challenges our marginalized young citizens.
