Usher's New Look Foundation, a 501c3, established in 1999, certifies young people in four leadership pillars talent, education, career and service – to ensure their success as leaders throughout the world.
"New Look's process to certify youth in four leadership pillars was developed in partnership with Emory University's Goizueta Business School. A powerful characteristic about this model is that it focuses attention both on an individual, through Education, Talent and Career, and on things bigger than the individual, through Service. This point of view is wholly consistent with the Goizueta's mission to create principled leaders for global enterprise."

Youth learn about personal goal setting, gain project management skills, and practice mobilizing their peers to solve community issues on a national level.
Youth learn how to develop strategic partnerships, compare diverse cultures, and scale innovation to change major issues on an international level.
