Respect Should Be the First Thing You Lead With


Anthony E. McDonald Sr.,

Executive Director/Founder

Our nonprofit organization started as an idea. Our founder, Anthony E. McDonald Sr., wanted to talk to young men  about life, his journey, what he went through, and what they can learn from it. Information and awareness are the keys to survival and make better choices and persevere through any adversity that they may be experiencing.


Even at a young age, Anthony was taught to respect others, to look people in the eyes, and become a leader. Anthony was thrown into the workforce at an early age without being equipped with the life skills he needed. As such, Leaders of Men Inc. will provide young men with leadership development training that will help them navigate through life.
