Ciara and Justin Bieber Join Usher at First Annual World Leadership Awards

Ciara

Ciara joined Usher and Justin Bieber for a special performance at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta on last Friday, in honor of Usher’s New Look Foundation’s first World Leadership Awards.

Eight awards were given out  throughout the evening to honor individuals and organizations, including President Bill Clinton who received the Service Legacy Award.

“Over the course of my life in public service, and now through my Foundation, I have tried to give young people the tools and opportunities to make a difference in their communities and around the world,” says President Bill Clinton. “Usher’s New Look Foundation has excelled in its efforts to inspire the next generation of leaders, and I am pleased the World Leadership Awards will shine a light on those who have given so much to others.”

The New Look Foundation mentors young people as global leaders. Currently in seven cities, New Look has worked with over 8,700 young people, and has provided over 150,000 hours of leadership training.

The program trains high school youth in leadership, business, education and service. Now in its eleventh year, New Look has seen a 98% high school graduation rate among alumni.  With its “Powered by Service” campaign and an international call to youth service, the New Look Foundation has made service more diverse, relevant and accessible to all young people.
