About Us

Tomorrow's Leaders NYC is a 9-year-old nonprofit organization that serves students and families that live in New York City. The brain child of Oluwatoyin "Toyin" Ayanfodun, TLNYC was founded in 2011 after realizing there were very few services for over-age middle and high school students, an often underrepresented and under-served population. Oluwatoyin’s previous experiences helped him to recognize that many of these students had untapped potential, but because of their previous school failures felt hopeless. He spent over two years working closely with schools, and organizations focused on education and youth development.

Our Mission

Tomorrow's Leaders NYC mission is to help over-age middle school students overcome social, emotional, and academic challenges to become positive and productive leaders of their community.

Our Vision

Tomorrow’s Leaders vision is to work with these students from middle school through their successful completion of high school, turning them into success stories, with hopes of them becoming future entrepreneurs, advocates, role models, and most of all, leaders.
