How do we measure the impact of our programming on the young men we serve?

We just ask them!


Young men in our Legacy League and Ambassador Programs are required to blog about their L.E.A.D. experience. This makes them accountable for their scholarship opportunity and helps us monitor and adapt our programming so we can ensure that we're not only delivering an experience that's fun but also life changing.
Ambassador Blog: Week 18, By Ambassador Lorenzo Woodward
Our little brothers, our middle school leaders had their tournament games. I had so much fun watching them play, because they had to play hard to advance. The first game was so tense. Young defeated a team 16-0, so they advanced to the championship to play the upcoming winning team. Sylvan played strong to advance to the semifinals, and BEST played strong as well to advance. Sylvan beats Best 10-5 and have a chance to play Young next week in the championship. Well hard work does pay off because I got to the park to volunteer at exactly 7:00 am, and left from the park at 7:00 pm. I was drained , but it was worth it. Next week championship game will be packed and I'm looking for it.
What A Blessing, By Ambassador Mendez Elder
 I can't explain to everyone how much of a blessing and opportunity it is to be chosen to participate in the Perfect Game Nationals. When I first heard about me being chosen from my mom, I thought she was kidding.  Once I realized that she was not kidding and that it was real I got really teary eyed. This is the opportunity I have been waiting for my whole life. To be honest it still seems like a dream and it hasn't hit me all the way yet. My mom was so emotional she also started crying tears of joy because she is so proud of me. Most of my family members really don't know what the Perfect Game National is but they know it's something good. This really is an opportunity to open up a lot of doors for me and my family. I know without this opportunity being giving to me it would almost be impossible for my mom to afford to send me there. I show a lot of emotion when I am happy and this is some of the best news I have ever heard in my life. It's a honor to go represent for L.E.A.D and the Atlanta Public School System. I'm going to be prepared and do every and anything it's going to take to make sure I make everyone proud of me. I'm going to work and train hard because I know it's going to be so much competition there. Everyone knows that hard work pays off and by me working hard and competing against some of the best athletes in the US, I might have a great chance in making it to the Aflac All American game.  I'm not saying I'm going to be an Aflac All American but I'm sure going to try my hardest and give everyone a run for their money. L.E.A.D is my family and I love you guys and I promise I'm going to make y'all proud of me. I would also like to thank every single board member and everybody that knew I could do it. Special thanks goes out to you to Coach CJ and Coach Kelli, for believing in me and putting all your trust in me to represent this great organization. I love you guys!
