YOUTH ARE LEADERS

Build a pathway for youth engagement that provides career development, opportunities for employment & resume building, and advocacy training.

 
 

YOUTH ARE NOT THE PROBLEM

Build understanding at all levels, from residents to police to county, city and state institutions to prioritize holistic/positive youth development that positions youth to be at-promise, not at-risk, through systems change.

CENTER MATRIARCHY

Recenter on matriarchal approaches. Challenge patriarchy and constructs that disempower the ability to adequately advocate for youth.
