Brooks among "Atlanta's 20 Under 20!"

For the past two years, Charlestavious Brooks (Sophomore) has been an ambassador for L.E.A.D. (Launch, Expose, Advise, Direct), an organization created to empower at-risk youth to lead and transform the City of Atlanta. He has completed over 150 hours of community service with a focus on poverty and homelessness. In the future, he wants to invest in homeless shelters, schools, and hospitals for the community. “My most memorable moment of volunteerism was when L.E.A.D. Ambassadors and I served food and shared life stories with homeless and disabled men that are in recovery from drugs and alcohol who live at Trinity House. I want to solve homelessness, so making the connection with the men at Trinity House made we aware of the circumstances that caused their current state, how it could have been prevented and how I can help solve it for millions of people in the future.”  Read the article
