Youth Leadership Development

#StayWoke: Our Youth Leadership Development Intensive

#StayWoke is a space for young people to develop leadership; specifically, a greater ability to work independently to design and implement programming that is youth-led and centered and strategically aligned with YRTX’s work, an understanding of organizing to shift power, a community healing praxis as a vital part of social change and a greater understanding of local landscape and systems of power.

leadership pipeline

We have developed an organizing methodology, strategy and infrastructure to create a youth-centered common agenda that prepares us for the next 10 years of transformative change. We created a leadership development pipeline that will put youth at the forefront of healing our communities and winning demands that safeguard and realize our rights.
