Youth Action Team
Our Youth Action Team is our community development and social change team. In this eight week winter program, participants will have the opportunity to engage in opportunities that ignite local and social change in our community. Our team organizes two local volunteer opportunities, one plans and organizes community event, and becomes involved with one global action or cause. This program is all about enhancing leadership skills, awareness, advocacy, event planning and passion towards creating local and global change. Ages 10-18. No referral is required.
