YA-YA Network Empower Fellowship Application Fall 2019
The Youth Activist - Youth Allies (YA-YA) Network provides training and leadership experience to the next generation of activists in the movement for social and economic justice. YA-YA is a youth-driven, citywide, anti-racist, anti-sexist organization and allies with the LGBTQ+ community. We provide free (and often with stipend) core training to young activists.
Interested in becoming the leader you've always wanted to be? Apply to Empower.
The EMPOWER Fellowship program at YA-YA is rooted in the foundation of social justice advocacy; that we, ourselves, must take an active role in our own growth. Empower focuses on identity development, life planning, self-esteem, confidence building, and leadership training. Throughout the Spring, Empower fellows will complete an intensive program which focuses on the following: (I) Self Awareness & Identity Development, (II) Social Justice Lab, (III) Challenging Yourself & Unlearning, and (IV) Action & Life Planning. During the Action & Life Planning stage of growth, young people will get the opportunity to engage in an advocacy project of their choice.
