FLAGSHIP PROGRAM

After months of research and years of experience, our organization has begun the development and preliminary implementation of our brand new flagship program to empower youth through guided and meaningful community interaction that equips program participants with important and life-long sociopolitical skills.

PROGRAM GOALS

Youth Empowerment by Sociopolitical Development

Youth program participants will become well versed in the necessary sociopolitical factors that define youth empowerment by actively participating, reflecting, and influencing these processes.

Meaningful Impact on a Local Youth Issue

Youth participants will be given the opportunity to create an authentic impact in their local communities. This unique experience will foster a life-long commitment to serving the local community.

Involving Youth in Local Decision-making

Incorporating youth in local decision-making processes and institutions is crucial to youth empowerment. Communities will improve their ability to identify and respond to youth needs.

Participation in Advocacy at Broader Levels

With a strong foundation in local affairs, youth participants will gain the courage, connections, and skillset to engage in broader efforts of advocacy at county, state, and national levels.
