About Us

Our mission is to empower young people to bring about positive change in their communities, by exposing them to the theories and histories of knowledge in fields which are important to them, and by guiding them in community engagement, critical thinking, and the desire to understand and actively shape their environments.

We work together with teachers, parents, and community members to reinforce the students' sense of agency and community involvement. We seek to provide support to existing education programs, and to provide resources to those who wish to initiate new programs in neighborhoods that are most neglected, with the primary goal of challenging racism, sexism, and other injustices, by empowering the youth to stand up and express their aspirations and needs.
