Thank you to all who gave!!
For this year's #NTxGivingDay, we had an ambitious goal of raising $20,000 and our incredible supporters like you helped us not only meet but exceed that goal. We raised a total $23,195 before any matching funds!
If you didn't get a chance to donate to Young Leaders, Strong City you can still donate through our donation page. All support is welcome as we are actively preparing for our 9th Annual Teen Equity Summit and are on a mission to make it the BEST one our students have seen yet! When you make a gift to YLSC you are directly helping offset those programmatic costs.

Communicating and Collaborating Across Lines of Difference
Each year, YLSC brings together hundreds of students from public, private, and charter schools to talk about race. Facilitated by local educators, artists, and historians, our programming offers students the opportunity to critically engage with their peers from different backgrounds and identities. Each YLSC program begins by grounding students in their local history and explores their individual concepts of race and identity.
