Youth Leadership Program

“Empower through Service and Knowledge”

TMWF’s Youth Leadership Program (YLP) will provide high school students with diverse experiences that instill a spirit of leadership and community collaborations. Participants will:

  • Develop knowledge and confidence in presenting, participating, and leading service projects. Students are trained in leadership techniques, preparing them to make a positive impact in their communities.
  • Partner with local non-profits and experts to create awareness webinars on topics such as mental health, gender stereotypes, bullying/harassment, anti-racism, healthy relationships, self-defense, and self-image.
  • Host and participate in a wide variety of service events and projects. In doing so, they will learn the value of community service and civic engagement, build awareness around social issues, and learn leadership skills.
  • Provide self-defense and self-image training for their peers, especially within the refugee community.

The Youth Leadership Program is led by the all-volunteer Youth Council Members. Interested volunteers please complete the following form to apply and someone will contact you shortly.
