The Youth Leadership Project (YLP) is the heart of SEACA’s programming and relationship with the community. Through workshops on political education as well as topics responsive to the conditions of members’ lives, the program’s goals are to:
Youth Organizers (YO’s) drive positive change in their communities by turning ideas into action.
Youth Organizers take on more responsibility and play a larger role in the decision-making process throughout SEACA’s campaigns.
Youth members can gain greater levels of leadership in the organization by becoming a youth organizer. As youth organizers, students deepen their leadership skills through workshops and YO retreats to discuss topics such as facilitating, cycles of oppression, power analysis, and campaign development. SEACA staff continue to emphasize relationship and community building among the YOs.
