Details for Learners to Leaders
We've created a national alliance at a local level.
Learners to Leaders® is a national alliance that helps disadvantaged individuals achieve educational goals through local programs. It focuses on those who have the desire to succeed, but don't yet have the skills to overcome their challenges—whether academic, social, or economic. These are often first-generation college-bound students, low-income, or minority individuals.
This program is a collaborative effort between Smithfield and local educational and mentoring partners. It strives to create confident leaders by providing them with the skills to succeed and putting them in a position to give back to their communities. Smithfield has contributed approximately $3 million to Learners to Leaders since the program's inception.
