In Detroit, many youth do not have the resources or skills to compete after high school. YOUTH VOICE (YV) provides a program that focus on important elements of becoming a productive member of society.
A network for youth to build individual and collective power to make positive change.
YOUTH VOICE develops young people capacities in leadership to make change in their lives and community using four areas: identity development, youth organizing, community service, and critical thinking.
Detroit lacks in youth empowerment spaces that create opportunities for young people to understand the community around them and how they can make a difference. YV develops their leadership skills and capacity in implementing the change they envision.
YV will continue to expand opportunities by establishing more peer-to-peer leadership and developing new chapters!
