WHAT is LEADERS for LIFE?
The mission of the Leaders for Life (L4L) fellowship program is to enable highly motivated Take Stock in Children scholars that have demonstrated strong leadership skills, moral character, and academic success, to excel in a university environment by providing them with the tools and resources necessary to empower them to develop to their fullest potential.
The ultimate goal of the program is to eliminate the financial burdens normally associated with a university education and allow the fellows to devote one hundred percent of their attention to their studies and personal development.
Sponsored by the Asofsky Family Foundation, the Leaders for Life Fellowship has changed the lives of 64 student scholars throughout the state of Florida.
