L.E.A.D. Center for Youth is a nonprofit, sport based youth development program. Their mission is to empower an at-risk generation to lead and transform their city of Atlanta by using the sport of baseball to teach Black boys how to overcome three curveballs that threaten their success: crime, poverty and racism.
If you missed part one of our special episode with Kelli and CJ be sure to go back and give it a listen. We spoke about each of their personal journeys and how CJ made the jump from private coaching, to laying the foundation to start LEAD.
In this episode, we dive into getting LEAD off the ground, the decline of Black players in the Major Leagues and how Kelli and CJ are supporting their boys beyond the sport of baseball.
