Founder and President

Welcome to Develop Future Leaders Organization (DFLO). An organization designed to fill a void in our Community, where I feel the basics are essential reading, writing and comprehension. To spark interest through events such as Essay contest and other events designed to spark the brain. So, our youth can grow up to be leaders. As the founder of (DFLO) to me a leader must lead by example, through hard work, dedication, determination, focus, long hours and the list goes on until you reach your goal. My goal is to open a Community Center that will serve our community in all aspects for youth, senior citizens, homeless and felons. Everyone deserves a second chance. I was inspired by my mother who raised me, she worked very hard and always encouraged me to do my very best. She also told me that you won’t be the best at everything, but at least try. That’s why I am the man I am today. Lead by example and always encourage young people to be the best they can be and never give up until you reach your goals.

Sincerely,
Carl E. Fortson Jr.
