Young Governors is a youth -led program with the ultimate goal of training teenagers to become community organizers as well as leaders.
After being in the program for 2 years, the youth will have the opportunities to become leaders for the program. They will facilitate the meetings, handle administrative jobs, coordinate events, run media campaign and more.
In other words, this unique program model creates a cycle of leadership that offers opportunities for further growth.
Through this program model, youth will be seen as the vehicles for change in the community, instead of the problem, as is often the case in today’s society. They will be empowered to be the advocates, organizers, and educators among their peers through workshops, projects, and service.
