The Pinkerton Foundation has launched a new program to support leaders of color in the youth service field, the Foundation’s President and CEO Rick Smith announced today. Open to BIPOC heads of current or former Pinkerton grantees, The Pinkerton Advanced Leadership Network will offer twelve leaders the space, support and professional development resources to sharpen skills, share insights and explore new ways to drive impact in the youth development field.

Pinkerton has committed nearly $1 million to date to establish the Institute for Transformative Mentoring at New York’s New School. Watch the program’s inspiring video:
