2024 Y-WE Youth Leadership Council

Creating Ecosystems for Transformation

Sign up for our Spring 2024 Youth Leadership Council Cohort! This year’s theme is Ecosystems of Transformation. Over the course of 10 weeks, we’ll be unpacking the conditions that allow us to cultivate collective power. Together, we’ll learn what it means to embody our values, co-create accountable communities and explore the abundant ways to engage in social change. We will create space for our grief so we can hone in on our capacity to tend to and foster hope. 

YLC will take place weekly on Thursdays, March 7th- May 16th from 4:30-7:30pm at the Y-WE office. This program is for folks between the ages of 15-20 who have already done at least one Y-WE program. This cohort will be focused on cultivating community and the series will build on prior sessions. Because of this, we ask that participants who enroll are mindful of their capacity and plan to attend all 10 sessions. It is our intention to use this time together to practice community accountability and, in doing so, honor our commitments. This program will center BIPOC youth.
