The Boys to Leaders Foundation is the vision of a single mother, raised and still a resident in the City of Newark, who has a growing concern for the lack of programs that reinforce leadership skills and expose her son to resources that will strengthen him in becoming a positive and successful man. In response to her commitment to her community, and most importantly her son, she decided to create an organization that will benefit young men, giving them a strong sense of direction to enhance their achievement and demonstrate her commitment to them and her community. One of the many benefits from the Latino Youth Leadership Conference will be the ability to promote a culture of communication that will translate into sustainable results for the future. “The opportunity to meet prominent  men in their work environment through partnerships with specific agencies and companies in which they will be able to build relationships with caring, adult professionals who offer hope, opportunities and mentorship” - Sara Peña, Founder & President.
