Jalen Rose Leadership Academy

Jalen Rose founded the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy – an open enrollment, public charter school in northwest Detroit – in 2011.  JRLA provides a leadership-focused education that engages and inspires youth to achieve at the rigorous level necessary to ultimately graduate with a college degree.  In September 2016, NBPA Foundation made a grant JRLA, providing funding for the school to purchase 60 Chromebooks and related hardware and software for use by students.
