The Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) Program is a mentoring outreach effort of the National Black MBA Association Pittsburgh Chapter. It functions as a network of high school students and professionals working together to guide young people down a path to professional careers and academic success. Mentors work with students on a consistent basis to help them develop the habits necessary for achievement, to set and reach goals, and understand personal and collective responsibility.

The Pittsburgh chapter of the National Black MBA Association believes that influencing a young person to focus on success is a process that requires consistent interaction, a rise in expectations, and provision of the tools and resources necessary to meet their goals. Mentorship, by itself, is not enough. Tutoring, by itself, is not enough. College preparation, by itself, is not enough. An integrated program is necessary to
help students increase their professionalism, increase their confidence, focus on academic achievement, and plan for the future. 

LOT is that integrated program – an intense system of engagement and activities related to academic excellence, college preparation, professional development, community service, life lessons, finance, SAT/ACT preparation, history and current events, networking, public speaking, analytical development, and leadership. The National Black MBA Association, Inc. operates Leaders of Tomorrow programs in various locations in America and the United Kingdom.
