Leaders of the Free World

About Leaders of the Free World

Leaders of the Free World(LFW) is an international experience and leadership development program for young Black men. Our mission is to develop dynamic leaders who are globally-minded, self-aware, and service-driven.
The Leaders of the Free World program works on a national level and incorporates personal & professional development, cultural exchange, and mentorship, with a particular (but not exclusive) focus on community college students. Along with the opportunity for international exposure , our students engage in learning and reflection activities, before, during, and after their trip; that target social and psychological barriers to academic success and retention.

LFW’s goal is to create a network of leaders whose development impacts their own lives and their communities; grooming the next generation of changemakers, entrepreneurs, and mentors.


External Communications Intern

June 2020 - August 2020 Worcester, MA
“I really enjoyed this internship. My supervisors, Ruby and Lavar, were lovely and worked with me to make sure I could meet the requirements for my school internship program. Our weekly meeting and frequent email conversations were just enough supervision for me to feel like I knew how they wanted things done, and I was allowed to set my own hours and prioritize what I thought should be handled first. I relished the opportunity to try out a new discipline of writing and learn more about nonprofit management, as well as to contribute to such an fantastic organization. It was and excellent internship.”
