RiseUp & Support The Movement
Usher’s New Look is dedicated to engaging disconnected youth to find a path to leadership and help them make career choices that match their passion. Our model certifying young people in four leadership pillars – Talent, Education, Career and Service – is making a huge difference in the challenges that the young dreamers of the world face.
Why we do what we do
Usher formed Usher’s New Look in 1999 at the tender age of 20 with the help of his mother. They were passionate about recognizing the vital need for positive role models and mentors for disadvantaged children and adolescents and wanted to help find ways to provide better lives for them. Usher’s new Look is a registered 501 (c) 3 tax exempt public charity and is dedicated to bridging the gap between despair and success for young people all over the world.
How we do it
We reach out to kids where they are, inspire them to greatness, show them they’re worth our love and hope and show them how to use their passion to succeed.
Our students are empowered with options that they never knew they had – to create change in their own lives and in the world.
