Emerging Leaders (ELP) is a college-prep leadership program aimed at providing adolescent boys of color opportunities to engage in academic and leadership development. Under the mentorship of professional, college-educated men of color, students engage in community service initiatives, gain exposure to higher education, learn about college access, and develop their personal leadership skills.

ELP mentors students who reside in Los Angeles County. Through a series of workshops, field trips, and assignments students have been working towards planning the rest of their high school careers and building their profiles as competitive candidates for top colleges.
