The Leonard Gucciardi
Our mission is to transition from sub-standard to optimal outcomes. Our program includes Health and Educational components. The Health component benefits anyone attempting to quit smoking, start exercising, eat healthy, and manage their weight. The Educational components assist with after school and GED programs. We also outline a new component, which addresses and combats the issues plaguing central Milwaukee (see our new Outreach tab above).
For change, you need some impetus, just as a chemical reaction benefits from a catalyst. For us, the impetus is found in the Inspiration section, where there are motivational quotations about a variety of lifetime challenges and a thought-provoking essay. Even if you aren’t interested in change at this time, this section is worthy of your time.
Please use the Contact tab of this website if you have questions about our program.

Leonard Gucciardi Empowerment Organization
The Leonard Gucciardi Empowerment Organization is a non-profit association dedicated to the promise of self-benefit. Regardless of the extent of an individual's resources, one who is aware of his or her talents and needs is in a matchless position to achieve positive change.
Change is complex. With simple behaviors, such as walking five miles or driving a car twenty miles, we make thousands of adjustments or changes. We are uniformly successful with these behaviors. With complex behavioral changes, such as improved learning, regular exercise, healthy eating, smoking cessation, weight loss, we "snap" our fingers and expect instant success. It doesn't work that way. Our organization copies the approaches we instinctively use with simple behaviors, and applies them to complex behaviors. With incremental and systemic change, meaningful transformation can be accomplished.
