Resilience is an anthem of the bay. An anthem often carried and furthered by our youth. Join organizations from across the bay area as we highlight programs with youth at the core, whether it’s in programs who demand space for youth voice, performance, leadership positions, and those that move towards activism. Practices that can be applied to your own communities, that operate for, by and with the youth our education programs serve.
