About the Program
The Youth Leadership Program is an eight-month training program to develop organizing skills and a civic conscience in young people. Through lectures, group activities, workshops, and presentations from community leaders, students are exposed to grass-roots, community-led political change and are given a chance to participate in CARECEN’s own campaigns.
- Young people ages 12-17 can participate
- Group meets twice a week at CARECEN
- First-come, first-served
