Building New Leaders was founded in 2008 by a Baltimore County high school teacher, Martine Dennis. She wanted to do more to help children achieve their goals and aspirations by encouraging them to be great and to dream big. Partnering with Parents, community Leaders, business owners, educators, entrepreneurs and professionals in our quest to inspire all young people to realize their potential as productive, caring members of society. Inspiring and encouraging youth to do their best and to become future leaders of tomorrow.
My name is Yancy Dennis and I have been with Building New Leaders since its inception in 2008. I have an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT and a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. I have also taught at introductory Chemical Engineering courses to students at an HBCU, Delaware State University. I am one of the Building New Leader's Directors. I am the chief coordinator for the tour and also the speaker for most of the monthly meetings. I strongly believe in education and greatly value the opportunity to work with your children to hopefully inspire them to reach higher and obtain a college degree.
