Give in May!

Give In May is an opportunity for our communities to come together in the face of crisis and use the power of generosity to generate hope and healing. More than ever, especially in this pandemic, we are ensuring that our members can access community care through holistic leadership development programming that includes culturally relevant, social-emotional, and academic support. The guidance, political education, and leadership opportunities that youth receive now determine how our communities will rise up from this moment and beyond.
