When & Where
YOUTH POWER! is the New York State network of young people who have been labeled and are seeking change. Together, we have decided to speak up about our experiences because no one knows what it is like for us better than we do. Through peer-to-peer mentoring, we empower young people to be active citizens who are aware of government operations, their rights and the ability to use their voices to influence policies, practices, regulations and laws. We are young people helping other people, ensuring availability of self-help and peer support while changing systems so that young people get the support they need with the respect and dignity they deserve.
YOUTH POWER! envisions a world that embraces diversity, encourages resiliency, is strength-based and has the ability to adapt. A community, in which young people are inspired, empowered and supported to make informed choices.
