Conversations With Future Leaders® Virtual Lessons 

Established in 2012, the Conversations With Future Leaders® program (CWFL) is an interactive course that helps to build the self-esteem of students of all grade levels. The program is composed of activities, articles, videos, and individual reflections. The virtual program is adapted from the in-person CWFL program which focuses on hair 
(texturism), colorism, and body size positivity, which is not usually a focus in classrooms. These issues play a role in how students view themselves and can adversely affect their academic, personal, and future success. In every lesson, students are challenged to deconstruct societal standards of beauty and define beauty by their own terms. Explore the Virtual CWFL program.
