The National Black MBA Association
The National Black MBA Association, Pittsburgh Chapter is proud to offer the Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) Program. The LOT program is a national network of high school students and distinguished professionals who focus on empowering African American students in grades 9 through 12. These students have exhibited leadership potential, but require additional motivation, people, and influential factors in their lives to realize, and then capitalize on their full potential.
Scholarships, financial aid, college admission and employment opportunities.
The local LOT program consists of a network of high school students, MBAs, entrepreneurs, as well as other eminent professionals eager to participate in educating, mentoring and providing exposure to students as they make critical (post high school graduation) decisions regarding their academic careers and their future. Our mission is to develop positive, socially aware, teenage professionals by providing these students with essential leadership skills required to obtain scholarships, financial aid, college admission and employment opportunities.
Over the course of the year, students will get the opportunity to participate in programs that will help stimulate both their intellectual and economic growth. This program will offer students the opportunity to grow and develop with the support and guidance of successful business professionals at a national level.
LOT is the right choice for students eager to learn and interact with others throughout the business community. It also provides students with a change in setting that he/she is not exposed to on a regular basis, if ever. This program will help build students self-esteem and ensure students with the right attitude gain exposure to avenues that will help them with a successful launch into college and the workplace.
As a mentor, this is an opportunity to assist in developing positive, socially aware, African American professionals willing and ready to succeed. This provides mentors with the ability to directly influence the quality and quantity of tomorrows’ business professionals and leaders.
Applications for the LOT program are accepted annually, in early spring.
