I am 33 now, but I still remember my days with the Center For Leadership Development or better known as CLD. CLD taught me so much as a young African-American, about etiquitte, the importance of being on time, interviewing skills, college admissions, what to expect in college, responsiblity for self, maturity, conflict resolution...should I go on. Its mentors are leaders in the community that can relate well with the students they work with.
