Rating: 5 stars  

CLI is a nonprofit like none other out there. Where so many nonprofits help communities, they can also make them dependent on outside help. CLI is a self-sustaining program that uses it's Leadership Accelerator to empower young Congolese leaders to be change agents for their country. It is an incredible organization with a fantastic board and staff and volunteering there has been one of the best experiences I have had. The program is one needed greatly, and one that could be implemented anywhere in the world.

I have had many profound experiences with a number of different international development organizations and of course their programming methods throughout my career. Without a doubt, the CLI Leadership Accelerator introduced me to revolutionary grass-roots techniques that work. CLI has the potential for inspiring other leadership programs to do the same in particular because all participants, including myself, demonstrated an increased awareness and adaptation to a curriculum completely foreign to the environment that surrounds it. The initiative is moving towards a fine-tuning phase, and considering the organization is still only a start-up, that is pretty amazing. We still have some work to do surrounding cultural issues that continue to affect programming in different ways, but the foundation of the program is there and moving like a freight train.
