What we do:
Youth Leadership Corps (YLC)
If you are a high school aged person looking to develop leadership skills and awareness around sexual violence, you can join our Youth Leadership Corps program. YLC meets weekly to learn a wide range of topics including self-esteem, self-care, gender and sexuality, teen dating violence, healthy relationships, effective bystander intervention and more.
Why join YLC?
- Build leadership and advocacy skills
- Build career portfolio
- Meet other youth who are passionate about social justice
- Get paid while learning and developing leadership skills!
YLC runs from January to June, for youth ages 14-19. You’ll develop advocacy skills to become an activist in your own life. Each week we meet and discuss a wide range of topics from self-esteem, sexual violence, gender and sexuality to healthy relationships.
We then bring what we learn into the community through outreach, teamwork and CHH events, all while earning a stipend! Sign up with a friend! Want an application? You can reach Sadé at firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call 978.483.0262.
