Usher’s New Look Foundation Announced First World Leadership Awards

There’s no doubt that Usher has made his mark in the music industry, but because of his foundation, he is also making a notable impact with  the youth of Atlanta.

Usher’s New Look Foundation will hold its first annual World Leadership Awards on Friday, August 6th at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta.

The World Leadership Awards, which will bring together heads of state, civic and community leaders, philanthropists, and celebrities, will honor eight individuals for their commitment to supporting youth as leaders and change agents of some of our world’s most pressing issues.

Awards will include the Youth Catalyst Award, the Global Youth Leadership Award, the Global Ambassador of Youth Award and others. Usher will perform live.

The New Look Foundation, established in 1999, mentors young people as global leaders. The programs train high school youth in leadership, business, education and service. Currently in seven cities, New Look has worked with over 8,700 young people, and has provided over 150,000 hours of leadership training.

Now in its eleventh year, New Look has seen a 98% high school graduation rate among alumni. With the launch of the Powered By Service campaign, an international call to youth service, at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2009, the New Look Foundation has made service more diverse, relevant and accessible to all young people.

Tickets to the Awards including the performance by Usher are available to the public through Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000 or at www.ticketmaster.com. Service charges will apply. Tickets are also available at the Bank of North Georgia Box Office at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta, 30339.
