Welcome to YouthPower, our new youth-led organizing hub
YOUTH OF COLOR ARE EXPERTS on their lives, needs, and the injustices they face, but too rarely at the table in developing strategies for racial equity.
YouthPowerTM is built on that premise: a place where youth of color can gather, reflect, express themselves, build skills, organize, and advocate for serious change on issues that affect their lives.
It starts this summer with 15 Black boys and young men and will open to all youth of color this fall.
See How We Impacted City Policy!
At our recent Youth Forum, young people courageously shared their serious concerns about changes City Councilmember Rebecca Noecker was proposing to Saint Paul's curfew law. As a result of their feedback, she withdrew her proposal.
It demonstrates the importance and power of youth voice in policy and of St. Paul Youth Services' leadership in connecting policymakers with young people to create a community that wraps its arms around our youth. Read CM Noecker's statement.
Thank you for responding to youth concerns, CM Noecker!
