The Muhammad Ali Center is accepting applications for its two high school student programs, the Muhammad Ali Council of Students and UCrew.
The Muhammad Ali Council of Students is a diverse group of young leaders committed to improving themselves and their communities through the practice of Muhammad Ali’s six core principles: respect, confidence, conviction, dedication, spirituality and giving. As a youth-led organization, these dynamic students make decisions that guide the course of their service work and leadership development.
The program is open to students in grades 10-12. Students will meet twice a month at the Muhammad Ali Center and will participate in learning projects throughout the year.
UCrew is a groundbreaking social enterprise program that offers a unique opportunity for students to learn about social entrepreneurship and work in teams to develop an actual social enterprise. Students will explore the issue of poverty in their communities and reflect on ways to combat local poverty through creative business endeavors. By the end of the program, students will have conceptualized, produced, marketed and launched a small social enterprise business.
The program is open to students in grades 9-12. Students will meet twice a month at the Muhammad Ali Center and will participate in service projects throughout the year.
