What we do



Leadership Development

Preparing young people to be leaders in life.


We equip youth with invaluable 21st century skills that allow them to develop themselves, their city and the world through service.

Using a research-based curriculum, youth in our Peer Education program participate in activities focused on leadership, life skills and service to their communities. These young people explore critical topics such as food policies, criminal justice, healthy equity, legal systems, and diversity and inclusion. Students combine this knowledge and the leadership skills they develop to serve as role models in their schools and as resources for their peers.

Young people in our school-based health education programming also acquire critical thinking skills for contemplating their futures, effectively communicating their decisions and ensuring self-respect. In these ways, they hone their sense of self and come to see themselves as effective advocates for themselves and others.
