Meet The Extreme Teen Leaders Board of Directors

President & Founder

Tamrah Barber is the President and Founder of Extreme Teen Leaders, Inc. and an ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC). She has developed youth programs for over 20 years and has worked in business development and the IT industry for another 20+ years . By leveraging her personal and professional experience, Tamrah is committed to giving back to youth in the community.

She founded Extreme Teen Leaders, Inc. because she wanted to provide teens with tailored programs that helped them realize their greatness, inspired them to contribute to their own community, and developed them intellectually so they could make good decisions and be resilient through tough challenges.

Tamrah is also the mother of 5 beautiful children who are all accomplished young adults with thriving lives and careers. It wasn’t easy to raise 5 children, but thanks to SEL tools and initiatives that later inspired Extreme Teen Leaders’ programs, she managed to ensure each of her kids would grow to be leaders and adults fully in charge of their own lives.

The tools Extreme Teen Leaders, Inc. gives to teens actually work and Tamrah has seen the results through her own children, and she’s now on a mission to share the same skills with all young people and families struggling to make their way through these challenging years.

She knows she can’t accomplish such a big vision alone -- that’s why she has assembled a team of professionals and leaders to help carry it out.

In addition, Tommie founded and co-founded two successful for-profit businesses and two non-profits.

As an educator and academic department director, she developed curriculum in broadcast media and music entertainment for the Music Entertainment Management department and was featured for her knowledge of the music business during the 90’s and Atlanta’s rise as an R&B and Hip-Hop mecca.
