What do we do?

We harness the power of relationships to effect real and lasting change within the community of Immokalee
Get Involved

1 By1 Leadership Foundation sees its role as a “Relational Router” by building trusting relationships with Immokalee’s most vulnerable populations and in turn, connecting them to community-wide resources that can help support them in overcoming their circumstances. With this in mind, OBO continues to network and collaborate with non-profit organizations and convene community leaders from various sectors of the city on behalf of young people and their families.
