BUILDING RACIAL JUSTICE, EQUITY, AND ACTION ACROSS COMMUNITIES.
Young Leaders, Strong City is designed to elevate the experiences, perspectives, and voices of high school students across the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Our students focus intentionally on identifying opportunities to promote racial justice, equity, and action in their home and school communities to drive lasting outcomes. We engage with youth in partnership and support them as the future, and growing, leaders of tomorrow.
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.
