Youth Program

 

 

 

 

The Dolores Huerta Foundation Youth Program consists of two components, Liberated Youth for Empowerment (LYFE) & Livin’ LYFE. Previously known as Youth & Family Civic Engagement Initiative, this rebrand is more than just a new name, it now offers young people opportunities to develop a critical lens on history and systems of inequity. Through evidence-based best practices, the Youth Program aims to increase civic engagement participation among low-income, disenfranchised youth and their families to reduce racial and socio-economic disparities. DHF Youth Program’s goal is to empower each young person as they transition to a social justice warrior by providing them the tools and resources every step of the way.

LYFE offers young people opportunities to develop a critical lens on history and systems of inequity. LYFE incorporates three vital pathways for personal and professional development: Civic Engagement, Transformational Art, and New Media & Technology. This immersive 5 year program includes a pathway crafted to meet the intersection of community engagement and health/wellness all while amplifying the voices of our future leaders.
