The Foundation is inviting young people who are looking for new ideas and opportunities to get involved. This training will help you build the relationships and skills you need to be the change you want to see.

The foundation is committed to bringing together a group of people with diverse viewpoints, backgrounds, socioeconomic status, education levels, religious beliefs, races, and ethnicities.
