As a mentor to countless New Look youth over the years, Usher has taught students many lessons on finding leadership and achieving success. At the core of these lessons is giving back to others through service. Through the New Look program, Usher has made it his lifelong mission to teach students from under-served communities that the best leaders are the ones who give back to others. Giving back is how change is made. Even just one small act of service in a community can spark a ripple effect, creating even more positive outcomes. For the past 15 years, this message has become ingrained in the hearts of the students who complete our program. We call it being ‘Powered by Service.’ It’s this dedication to paying it forward, combined with a passion for education and career goals that make New Look youth reach higher and grow into ‘BIGGERTHAN’ global leaders.
Over the Holiday break, Atlanta college student members of our Moguls in Training program, Jack Lovern, Rashad Cain, Vanecia Thompson, Alysia Shareef and Kamera Cobb, served their community by volunteering with senior citizens at Manor Care Rehabilitation Center! Atlanta MIT, Jack, told New Look, “We led a bingo session, socialized with the patients, and helped to set up for lunch. Hopefully we can do this again soon!”
