SIREN Youth Leadership Group

SIREN’s Youth Leadership Group (YLG) is a program designed for immigrant (family) youth (14-25 years old) who are interested in gaining leadership, community organizing, and policy advocacy skills, and learning about issues affecting immigrant communities. This program provides a support system and space for creating and sharing experiences and perspectives, while advocating for the dignity and fair treatment of immigrant youth and families, regardless of immigration status. Through mentorship and collaboration with local leaders, professionals, and social justice advocates, SIREN empowers youth to take action by volunteering, organizing, and participating in various activities, including educational forums, deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) and citizenship workshops, civic engagement, and advocacy actions.

 

Participants will benefit from:

  • Community Service Hours
  • Internship Opportunities
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Professional Networking

Develop crucial career skills:

  • Public Speaking
  • Campaign Planning
  • Community Organizing
  • Advocacy and more!

YLG meets on the fourth Wendesday of the month at the SIREN office from 5:30 pm - 7 pm.
