About Usher’s New Look
Nearly 17 years ago in 1999, a then 20-year-old Usher Raymond IV sat in the back of an Atlanta courtroom with his mother Jonnetta Patton, listening to juvenile court hearings. As each teen took the stand and shared their testimony with the judge, their stories began to flow together. Each one was connected by a common thread; the circumstances that had led them there. At the root of each narrative, Usher and his mother observed a lack of mentorship, opportunity and exposure.
It was from this experience that Usher was driven to ignite a movement that would provide underserved youth with the ability to see past their current circumstances and discover a new perspective, or new outlook, on what their life could be. With the help of his mother, he formed Usher’s New Look (UNL), as a catalyst to empower and instill confidence in young people all over the world. His goal that year was to help 10 Atlanta students discover their potential and unlock their purpose. Nearly seventeen years later, UNL has now touched the lives of over 30,000 youth around the world.
