Eastside Programs

Center for Leadership Development (CLD) satellites and in-school programs will remove barriers to participation by taking CLD programs where youth and families live. The satellite model will allow us to share our proven, high-impact college readiness and success programs with previously unserved communities. Though the development of satellite programs has been slowed by COVID-19, CLD moved forward with the launch of Project MR. (Male Responsibility) at Christamore House on the west side. Now, we are excited to offer satellite locations on the eastside and far eastside of Indianapolis and look forward to welcoming students from those communities.

Project MR. (Male Responsibility)

Grade Level
7th 8th 9th 10th

The purpose of the Center for Leadership Development’s Project MR. (Male Responsibility) program is to equip, empower and prepare adolescent African-American males for achievement and success by teaching them the appropriate principles, behaviors, attitudes and values that lead to personal development and career success; to teach adolescent African-American males how to be responsible, self-believing, achieving men in society. This is achieved through exposing the “Misters”, as they are referred to, to educated, upstanding and caring African American male professionals who serve as the facilitators of this program.
