Usher’s New Look is raising money to support their work to transform the lives of teens from underserved communities. Your donation will assist us in reaching 5,000 youth this year. The money you donate will help teens in each of the 4 Leadership Academy markets: Atlanta, New York City, Milwaukee and Detroit. Our program helps teens identify their unique talent, gain access to career exposure, thrive in a competitive workplace and transform their mindsets. We produce positive contributors to society. Watch this video clip to hear from UNL students why the work they do is so important!
