Imagine 1,600 plus students and parents gathered in one place gaining a comprehensive understanding of the entire college readiness process - how to work hard in school, how to apply for admission, from learning how to seek scholarships, and apply for financial aid, to gaining tips on how to excel and graduate from college. This is exactly what the Annual CLD College Prep Conference & College Fair provides. 

In collaboration with college and university administrators, CLD will expose students and parents throughout the state of Indiana to the idea of college as an available option and to the many opportunities that a college education affords. Breakout sessions such as Creating a Standout Application, Financial Aid 101, and Parent Purpose: Your Role in the College Admission Process, are just a few of the informative and interactive sessions that will be presented during this conference.

This conference will provide resources for youth and parents to help change behavior and values while guiding them to a self-directed path that will help them achieve in high school, enroll in and graduate from college, and gain employment in their career choice. Breakfast and lunch included

Center for Leadership Development


This vision – empowering youth and strengthening community – became clear in the mid 1970's when Indianapolis community leaders identified several reasons why African American youth were failing to graduate from high school, not entering college and failing to achieve economically sound and personally rewarding careers. Youth did not value education as an aspirational goal, they were not aware of the many options available to them, and they did not have the support of family and community. African American role models were not stepping forward in enough force to mentor and guide these young people.

Responding to the many serious obstacles facing minority youth, these visionary leaders founded the Center for Leadership Development (CLD). Since that time, CLD has developed programs and events which deliver exceptional experiences to both students and parents. The programs are based on CLD's Five Principles for Success – five core values that develop and prepare youth for the highest levels of academic achievement, career success and community service.
