Long-Term Impact
Over time, our program helps students grow in three areas that prepare them to be strong social justice advocates:
BELIEF
Students believe they can be a leader and have something powerful to say 
DESIRE
Students want to use their voice to advocate for social justice in different settings
SKILLS
Students know how to use their authentic voice to advocate for social justice
According to academic research, students of color who engage in programs focused on building their critical consciousness also perform better academically. Additionally, our program helps students develop an important life skill – communication – that they can use to thrive in the workforce.
