Change our future is a youth development organization that seeks to remove barriers and labels placed on underserved communities by empowering people through education, advocacy and awareness. Our programs are structured to engage and challenge our students to become agents of change and leaders of tomorrow through innovative experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. We bring cultural awareness and diverse experiences to ensure equitable representation is at the forefront for our students in the areas of leadership, mentorship, literacy, healthy lifestyles and community enrichment.
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Rodney and Erika McLeod are both graduates of the prestigious University of Virginia. They are both extremely passionate for giving back to their communities and inspiring anyone they come in contact with. Each program and event that they are a part of they strive to give their best selves and to break all barriers. Both are products of positive mentors and support. They believe wholeheartedly in the importance of inspiring, growing, and developing the next generation by bridging the gaps no matter their backgrounds. Rodney and Erika’s involvement in Change our Future is currently impacting Philadelphia, Prince George’s County, MD, Camden and Trenton, NJ.
They hope to expand beyond those city lines and reach as many youth as they can.
Change Our Future leads the movement to advance programs, opportunities and resources that give youth, families, and communities a path toward a healthy and hopeful future.
