The African-American Leaders for Tomorrow Program (AALTP) is a week-long residential summer program that is held on the campus of California State University, Sacramento. Fifty students are hand selected and receive leadership training and attend workshops on topics such as financial literacy, effective leadership and the importance of community advocacy. Students live on campus at California State University, Sacramento (at no cost to them).

Goals

The AALTP seeks to identify and help prepare the next generation to become community, governmental and organizational leaders in the African-American community. The primary goal is to increase the pool of leaders to address pressing issues of education, poverty, crime, chronic health problems and high mortality rates in the lower socioeconomic communities. We seek to address these problems by supporting and encouraging academic excellence among participating youth. All participants will receive advanced training, focusing on critical thinking and leadership skills. Interaction with lobbyists, community leaders, corporate leaders and elected officials will offer our participants direct access to a vast knowledge base with infinite experience. Selected students must be in good academic standing and have a minimum 2.5 GPA.
