We're happy to hear that Usher's foundation, the New Look Foundation, is doing so well.
In fact, it even hosted the World Leadership Conference this year in Atlanta!
It's an annual initiative that brings together celebrities, influencers, newsmakers and accomplished youth from around the world, with the goal of educating and empowering young people in New Look’s four pillars: talent, education, career and service.
There was leadership training, panel discussions, and a Leadership Certification day — where selected New Look youth took over Atlanta and used their new training to empower and mentor approximately 1,000 Atlanta-based middle school students!
Then, on the last day, the New Look Foundation gave them the amazing opportunity to shadow top corporate CEOs, from GE, Coke, etc.!
Here's what Usher said:
“The World Leadership Conference is about motivating, inspiring and empowering today’s youth to become future leaders. At a young age, someone believed in me and planted a seed that allowed me the opportunity to succeed. All youth need that opportunity and New Look is giving them the tools, resources, and the hope to do just that.”
We're blown away by this!
What an amazing experience for these kids — and what a great way channel all the hope and effort you have into an amazing cause.
Congrats on the success, Usher!
