Welcome to Ma’at University

We Provide Transformational Learning to Underserved Communities Worldwide

Our Vision

We see the coming of a world where women and men lead together as one. Where all females feel safe & empowered by men and the world around them. Where boys and men are happy, healthy, and whole from the inside out. And where boys and girls grow up together holding true to their sacred bond as brothers and sisters. The young appreciate the wisdom of the elders and the elders are grateful for the contribution of the youth. A world where we've learned how respect the true nature of each other as we continue to create a peaceful world together.

He worked most of his career in two of LA’s toughest communities Compton and Watts. While serving as a Sheriff he noticed that he was arresting the same people year after year and knew there had to be a better way. The solution he developed is a program called the Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA) that is turning around and saving lives. The Emerging Leaders Academy provides tools for self empowerment through guidance, mentoring and training. ELA is a path to opportunities, providing participants with essential career developmental skills for traditional employment, entrepreneurship training and a therapeutic writing workshop, all being alternatives to criminal behavior and violence thereby empowering participants to take a new direction in life. IT WORKS! 90% of the Emerging Leaders Academy graduates do not re-offend! Let that sink in. 9 out of 10 of the graduates go forward in life and become positive contributors to their families, communities and country. As a result of his works, Clyde has been the two time recipient of the "Season of Peace" award, the "Homer Garrett Community Leadership" award along with many other leadership and community based awards.
