Overview

Be more than a bystander because every child deserves a chance to succeed. Intelligence and ability are evenly distributed, but opportunity is not. This unequal distribution of opportunity – including access to education, health care, investment capital, and jobs – leads to significant economic disparities, both within the state and around the country, and prevents underserved populations from realizing their potential. By increasing access to these resources, we aim to give individuals the opportunity to work their way out of poverty and uplift their communities. Malden Rising Leaders is working toward a community where every child and emerging leaders can achieve full participation in all aspects of life. Our programs empower our young leaders to participate more fully in the social and economic life of the Malden community by expanding access to education and training, supporting low income families, and promoting economic opportunity.

Mission

Malden Rising Leaders commitment is to share its knowledge with the next generation of leaders. The Louis-Jacques family created Malden Rising Leaders in gratitude to the City of Malden and to play a role in helping young brilliant students thrive academically, personally, athletically, and to help create opportunities for them beyond high school.

Vision

Like his mother, Ted Louis-Jacques has embraced his role as mentor. He acquired a gift for both learning and teaching at an early age, honed those skills in his work throughout the Greater Boston area and beyond. With that passion for service, Ted Louis-Jacques’ vision for Malden Rising Leaders is one that continues to help youth of the community thrive by supporting emerging leaders through scholarship, assistance and resources for their families.
