Application Open for The Empower Fellowship
September 6, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Deadline: 6th September, 2021
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.
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, self-esteem, confidence building, and leadership training. Throughout the Spring, Empower fellows will complete an intensive program that focuses on the following:
(I) Self Awareness & Identity Development
(II) Social Justice & Unlearning
(III) Action & Allyship
(IV) Action Project. During the Action Project stage, young folks will get the opportunity to engage in an advocacy project of their choice.
