Empowering the next generation.

ABOUT US

 Founded in 2011 by Delia Kim Sorto and based in Elmhurst & Corona in Queens, our youth-led grassroots organization integrates extensive and intensive community needs assessments, teamwork, and meaningful public discourse. We aim to cultivate a body of informed and empowered young leaders cognizant of their agency and responsibility as change-makers of the present and the future. We are located at New Life Fellowship Church, 82-10 Queens Blvd Elmhurst, NY 11373.

OUR MISSION

"Equipping youth with the tools they need to create positive change with their peers, families, community, and the world."
