TESTIMONIALS

21st Century Leaders gave me the most unique and wonderful experiences that to this day I consider my favorite. 21st Century Leaders has been the catalyst for many of the endeavors I took on my junior and senior years in high school and all four years of college. I have great comfort knowing I have them as a support system, and I know they will continue to be there for me throughout the years
Maria Flores Blackburn, Tax Associate, Smith & Howard (21CL Alumni)
I really enjoyed participating in the summer programs, which provided excellent opportunities to build business and teamwork skills and network with influential members of the Georgia business community as well as with other motivated high school students. I believe that the program provided a great foundation for my career in teaching me the value of networking and instilling in me the importance of being a team-oriented player in the workplace.
Ben Bryant, Assistant General Counsel, InComm (21CL Alumni 1999)
Learning to network at 16 years old definitely impacted my future. Instead of just collecting business cards like my college friends did, I was building meaningful relationships. I got a full time, corporate job immediately after graduating from college, and even though I was young, I’m sure it was because of the confidence I gained by working with professionals early on
Brandi Harrison, Senior Production Manager, CNN (21CL Alumni 1997)
“21st Century Leaders impacted my life in several ways in high school. Because of my experience with 21st Century Leaders, I felt very comfortable with getting involved in leadership positions in college and beyond, such as serving as President of the Student Government Association at Georgia State University.”
Marcus Kernizan, Consultant, Accenture (21CL Alumni 2009)
