Help Sponsor a Hudson Valley Teen to be a Youth Leader

feature youth program

I am writing to ask if you will join me in sponsoring a teen growing up in Hudson, NY to work this summer as a Youth Leader in a Social Justice Leadership Academy (SJLA). I am so excited to do this, as it is a gift that goes directly to making a difference in a young person’s life.

This program, which is in its third year, has been so powerful and transformative that there are 12 young people, most of whom participated in the first two years of the program as participants, who applied come back as Youth Leaders. SJLA is a five-week collaborative leadership training for teenagers (ages 13-18), run in partnership by Kite’s Nest and the Staley B. Keith Social Justice Center.

You can learn more about SJLA here. Sponsorships range form $250-$1250.

Thank you for supporting youth in developing their voices and visions for change!

Please email me and let me you made a difference! It would mean a lot to me to know we have a community of people who support amazing projects in our local area.

Thanks!
Joan
