Usher’s New Look (UNL)—a national, youth-oriented nonprofit organization based in the United States—wanted to engage its alumni and volunteers to better coordinate various development programs for underprivileged youth. With Accenture’s help, UNL was able to develop an online platform to strategically engage its program alumni and volunteers in developing today’s youth into global leaders.
UNL is dedicated to engaging underprivileged youth in four leadership pillars—talent, education, career and service. Volunteers help support UNL’s mission and facilitate opportunities for youth, to help them identify their unique talents, hone in on education, explore career opportunities and give back to others.
Since its inception, UNL has been transforming the lives of today’s youth as they progress from the eighth grade through college. The results speak for themselves: 100 percent of its youth participants graduated from the program, and 98 percent went (or have gone) on to higher education.
