The Successful Teens International Leadership Program was founded by Dr. Dorrellle Lomax Burnett, DD, the Executive Director of CFCI Foundation, in 2008, to support the mission of the SUCCESS Foundation. Dr. Burnett established a cooperative relationship between HNA Sports, the Los Angeles Clippers NBA team and the SUCCESS Foundation. The launch of the leadership program was part of his success education initiative. This program touched the lives of thousands of teens and millions of NBA fans. Dr. Burnett brought the Successful Teens International Leadership Program to Chicago in 2011.
