Our Authorizer Pillsbury United Communities (PUC) is committed to work actively to develop future leaders. Pillsbury United Communities has observed that many of the youth served by the PUC are not engaged in challenging paths to prepare for a successful career.

The Pillsbury United Communities and the planners of Learning for Leadership Charter School (LLCS) both understand that students need a nurturing and challenging environment to learn more skills and improve work habits. Students of color must be participants in a school providing this type of opportunity.

Ultimately ours is a strategy to build cross cultural experiences in learning through a combination of strategies. Charter schools seeking more diversity eventually may be able to adopt some of our strategies, after we demonstrate success.
