We are bringing the voices of District young people to the attention of city leaders and other decision makers, so youth voices will make a genuine impact on the policies that affect them every day.

The Youth Voices Youth Power Project works to amplify youth voices by collaborating with young people to share their personal stories as a way to advocate for change.
