We are built on the principle that every person has expertise and wisdom and deserves to exercise real power, creativity, and leadership in their lives


Real change requires leadership from directly impacted communities. Our leadership pipeline prepares community members for a lifetime as social justice leaders. We provide members with intensive organizing skills training, mentorship, and emotional support and connect advanced leaders to paid opportunities. 


We support community members  in achieving their goals — and provide the tools for them to help others do the same.  We are experts in designing peer-to-peer programs, such as our promotora program, which trains community members to become public health advocates and attain stable careers in healthcare. Similarly, youth at our Student Success Centers apply to college with help from their peers, learning to provide the same support to others in turn.

Support the next generation of leaders
