Educating youth on civic matters they may be unaware of, or of which they may lack a depth of knowledge.

Empowering youth to speak up and act by hosting events and creating a platform to share experiences.

Supporting youth through the creation of a network of help by youth, for youth to talk about similar experiences, ask questions, receive advice, and to build a sense of community

Advocating for youth who may be too afraid or who may lack the platform to speak up themselves.
