The Youth Leadership Project provides an affirming, safe space for teens to engage in important conversations on a range of topics like healthy relationships, media literacy, and social movements.
Youth Leadership Project
The HopeWorks’ Youth Leadership Project is a service-learning program dedicated to empowering teens to challenge systems of oppression and prevent relationship violence. Youth Leadership is open to teens ages 13 – 18 of all genders, backgrounds, and identities. This project provides an affirming and safe space for all students.
Youth Leaders will:
- engage in discussion,
- raise their social consciousness,
- participate in several creative projects and activism throughout the year,
- actively work to raise awareness and change the culture that allows sexual and dating violence to thrive.
Application window for the 2021/2022 cohort closes October 4, 2021.
See attached application for more information, and please feel free to share with any students who might be interested. Please note that, as of now, this year’s cohort is planned to be held virtually.
