Our Social Change Agents (SCA) are self-identified young women and non-binary youth, ages 14 - 18, from across NYC. SCA have participated in our 6 month long A.M.P Leadership Program. Amplifying Multiple Perspectives (AMP) has empowered our Social Change Agents to promote a multitude of backgrounds, experiences and of course, perspectives! During A.M.P training, our Social Change Agents attended weekly workshops and field trips to critically examine ways they can use their passions and purpose to become strong leaders of gender and racial justice! As the final component of their program, Social Change Agents will activate their leadership ability by interning at community organizations to learn about, and participate in, social justice within the professional realm.
