May 22, 2024

We are incredibly proud to share that our CEO, Sheila Duke, has been recognized as a 2024 Nonprofit Trailblazer by City & State NY and New York Nonprofit Media. This prestigious list honors visionary nonprofit leaders across New York who are driving critical missions and impacting lives.

About the Nonprofit Trailblazer by City & State NY and New York Nonprofit Media: The nonprofit sector plays an integral role in caring for our most vulnerable community members and advocating for positive change. The Trailblazers award celebrates diverse leaders at the forefront of this important work at mission-driven organizations statewide.

Under Sheila's guidance since joining Roads to Success in January 2023, our youth empowerment initiatives have expanded to reach more underserved students than ever before. Her passion for cultivating potential in young people has been the driving force behind her over 20-year career in youth development.  

Sheila's journey began in 1999 as a local tutor at the MLK Community Center where she grew up. She quickly recognized her gift for not only imparting knowledge, but instilling confidence. This ignited a lifelong commitment to broadening horizons and supporting the holistic success of children and families.  

Even in her previous roles before Roads to Success, Sheila left an indelible impact through program development, strategic planning, fundraising and building strong community partnerships. She is deeply dedicated to creating access, opportunity and supportive environments for those who need it most.

We could not be more grateful to have such a visionary and compassionate leader at the helm of Roads to Success.  

Sheila's recognition as a 2024 Nonprofit Trailblazer is well-deserved.
