To keep up with the growing activism of today's youth, we are looking to build our network of "Adult Allies," who will receive training on how to respectfully partner with teens to create high-impact social change campaigns for issues they care about. Whether you are a teacher, community organizer, or just someone who really believes in the power of youth, we want you to join our community!
If you know youth who will be a good fit for this opportunity and/or you would like to advise them, please pass along the application for students: https://goo.gl/forms/EcJZaplaZZM9GRcB3
