Future Leaders in America's Government (FLAG) Program


We communicated previously regarding our Future Leaders in America’s Government (FLAG) Youth Mentoring Program and our STEM and Oratorical Competition for middle school, high school, and college students. On January 23, 2021, we will begin relaunching our program virtual via Zoom. We’d love for your middle schoolers and above to think about participating within the FLAG Program.

Blacks In Government’s FLAG program will provide opportunities for youth to grow socially, intellectually, and emotionally. The program is designed to successfully meet developmental needs of youth and help them become productive citizens. The FLAG program utilizes the talents and skills of BIG members as mentors to help youth transition from adolescence to adulthood. In line with BIG’s preamble, this program will help ensure that our youth will have the opportunity for full, complete and equitable access to jobs, education, advancement, housing and health services. FLAG is a youth program initiated throughout Blacks In Government (BIG) to provide guidance and mentorship to junior high, high school, and college students throughout the nation, as well as, provide college scholarships annually to build future leaders in America’s government. The program is composed of five tiers: Mentorship; Training Academy; Career Training and Education; Pre-Professional Career Opportunities (Internships); and College Scholarships.

Attached you will find the FLAG Program Overview as well as additional information. Below you will find a link to additional information as well. Please reach out to our me or FLAG Advisor Mr. James Clausell, Sr. (he is attached to this email thread) if you have any questions or need any additional information. Thank you for always “Thinking BIG!” 😊
