00 - About US (Dr. Diana Clemons) Photo.png

Future Leaders Outreach Network (FLON), was founded by Dr. Diana E. Clemons, and Njeri Shomari in Kansas City, MO in 1996, then incorporated in 1999 as a nonprofit organization with tax-exempt status under IRS code      501 (c) (3). 


FLON's headquarters is in Kansas City, MO, and has two regional offices located in Kansas City, KS, and Arlington, TX.  For nearly 25 years, FLON's focus on service and commitment has remained with teens, young adults, their parents, and other caring adults in the communities where we live and work.


Our agency continues to expand and has already served 390,575 teens, young adults, their parents, and other caring adults, who have participated in various initiatives across seven states, and the District of Columbia. These reflect our numbers by end of the first quarter 2024, and we're still counting!


We would love to include you!


We develop age-appropriate initiatives for young people and adults to take personal responsibility and self-reliance to empower them to take responsibility to secure their future to be self-sufficient (able to take care of themselves) It is for this reason that FLON and most recently, the YouLEAD Assistance Network, an affiliate of FLON were established. 

FLON is a trendsetter and research has shown this prevention intervention has made a statistically significant impact on young people and adults since 2004. 


Prevention is the cornerstone of one of our initiatives. Prevention from the use and abuse of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, involvement in any type of violence, and prevention from teen pregnancy.

Our participants receive age-appropriate curriculum that includes: Job readiness, Unlocking MY Potential, career exploration, financial literacy, True Colors, leadership & character development, and entrepreneurship. 

Of the 390,575 people, who have participated in various programs, 297,800 have successfully completed the Pursuing MY Dreams and Choosing the Best curriculums lessons. 


Pursue Your Dreams now promoted as Pursuing MY Dreams EAGLES Club Project was published in the 2011 American Journal Health Studies (AJHS) .  To download, click arrow.
