6 previous #StayWoke students

If you are a teenager between the ages of 14-21 who has been affected by incarceration or deportation of a parent or caregiver, this is the program for you!!

Our summer is designed for you to meet people who share similar experiences, to build community, and to grow your skills in:

  • Community care
  • Healing justice
  • Community organizing

This will be a paid experience!  We are looking for a month-long commitment with the possibility of work that will continue all year! We are looking for people who are willing to learn more about systems oppression and paths to liberation for us and our people.

The application for this program will be live on April 28th and you’ll have until May 22nd to apply!
