    Youth can be transformative leaders, addressing inequity in their communities and the factors that lead to youth involvement in the criminal legal system.

    Social enterprise and entrepreneurship programs nurture young people’s skills to develop career pipelines and start businesses, solve local problems, and support economic development.

    Youth-led placemaking forges strong connections between individuals and their environments to create public spaces that foster community well-being.

    Art engages young people to build creativity, skills, and create networking opportunities to support educational and career trajectories.
