Banister's Leadership Academy

Strengthening youth and their families through Empowerment, Enrichment, and Extended Academic Success

Our Mission

We provide leadership, life and social skills in a safe and positive environment.

Education is Crucial

With Extended Academic Success projects, we provide youth with the skills, knowledge, and dispositions necessary to be life-long learners.

Since 2007, Banister’s Leadership Academy (BLA) has envisioned a community of not just leaders, but legends that inspire, innovate, and remind us to be better than yesterday and achieve the dreams of tomorrow. Find out how to be the next legend in your family, your school, or in your Community.

“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”

– Jack Welch
