From attending a Youth Summit, to taking a road trip to Oakland (CA), to hosting a Community Block Party, and organizing an empty lot action in LA – the past three months have been a busy time for youth and community members (cultivadores) in the Roots for Peace program.
This summer, we will continue to support youth leadership in LA through the Summer Freedom School!
Youth, ages 16-22, interested in organizing in their neighborhoods will meet for 10 days to learn through workshops, field trips, guest presentations and more, to develop their organizing skills to then create a final project in their neighborhood.
Transportation and food costs covered. $150 stipend provided to youth who complete the program.
Text Eli at 818.383.6434 if you want to apply now, application available online here. We highly encourage youth to apply by deadline Friday June 5th.
