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

Future Leaders Outreach Network (FLON), founded by Dr. Diana E. Clemons, is a nonprofit organization with tax-exempt status under IRS code 501 (c) (3).  FLONs headquarters is in Kansas City, MO with two regional offices, located in Kansas City, KS and Arlington, TX. 
 

FLON was established in Kansas City, MO in 1996 and funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services, then incorporated in 1999. The targeted population then as now is teens, young adults, their parents and other caring adults.
 

​Our agency has served over 377,000 teens, young adults, their parents, and other caring adults, who have participated in various program activities across seven states, including the District of Columbia..

 

Of the 377,000, approximately 275,000 people successfully completed the Pursuing MY Dreams (PMD) curriculum courses which includes career exploration, unlocking MY potential, job readiness, financial literacy, leadership development and introduction to entrepreneurship.  Prevention is the cornerstone of our programs. Prevention from the use and abuse of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, involvement in any type of violence, and prevention from teen pregnancy.   

we have set new goals for FLON. Over the next 2 years, we look forward to recruiting 3,000 young people and adults to participate in the Pursuing MY Dreams In MY Neighborhood - I Can Do It Initiative.  By December 31, 2024, we want to see people enroll in programs that strengthen their families, homes, blocks, neighborhoods, schools, churches, and communities. 

This Initiative brings us the opportunity to grow our own leaders, entrepreneurs, first responders, and neighborhood builders.  We hope that after you read information about the Young Leaders of Distinction (YLOD) and the YouLEAD program, utilizing Educational - Virtual Reality (E-VR)  Technology , you will contact us to learn more about our programs, get involved as a volunteer, a sponsor, make a donation, to be a part of helping to equip our young people to "Pursue their Dreams." 

     Thank you for joining me, 

          Dr. Diana E. Clemons
