Founded by Jacob Idra in 2019, ROSS Leaders has been committed to supporting students and their families. The organization began with 20 boys; today, ROSS has over 70 boy and girl participants across two different chapters in Omaha and Lincoln. We continue to offer a diverse range of programs to expose students to new experiences and opportunities. To inspire and mold the next generation of leaders, we create a welcoming culture where students are embraced and challenged to reach their full potential.
With the leadership of Nyankoor Timothy (ROSS Leaders Lincoln Chapter Director) and Christina Bol (ROSS Leaders Manchester Chapter Director), we have expanded our mission to Lincoln, NE, and Manchester, NH. In 2020, ROSS Leaders Lincoln hosted their first program at Everett After School Club with just five students and since grown to include more than thirty student participants. Likewise, we are excited to see the development of ROSS Leaders Manchester in 2022!
