Usher's New Look Foundation To Train And Certify 75 DC Teens
Usher's New Look Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by superstar Usher Raymond IV in an effort to empower young people from underserved neighborhoods around the world to create change in their communities, will host the first Washington D.C. Powered By Service training on Thursday, March 29, 2012.
Six New Look youth leaders – along with Shawn Wilson, President of Usher’s New Look Foundation – will lead and certify 75 Washington D.C. based eighth graders as leaders, a certification process backed by Emory University.
Powered By Service is a curriculum-based, peer to peer training program, where teens learn to identify their talents and apply that talent or passion to initiate change in their community through their own solutions – combating issues they face everyday whether it be bullying, gang violence, peer pressure, drug abuse and more.
Usher Raymond IV launched Powered By Service in 2009 at Clinton Global Initiative.
