First and Goal, Inc. designed Project L.E.A.D, an after-school enrichment program, to meet the needs of the community, as well as the individual needs of students. Statistics show that most juvenile crimes take place between the hours of 2:00pm and 8:00 pm, and that children are at a much greater risk of being the victims of a crime during these “after-school” hours. With this in mind Project L.E.A.D provides at-risk youth with a safe environment that will encourage educational and moral enhancement.

Understanding that the most effective means for helping youth is a personalized approach, it is our goal to relate to each of the students and provide “consistent personal attention.” In an effort to provide students with various ways learning, Project L.E.A.D. instructors incorporate challenging, competitive large group games and team-building activities to enhance leadership skills and positive social interaction among the students.
