Prior to Organize Uptown participants must engage in a 6-week L.E.A.D (Learn, Educate, Advance, Develop) youth leadership curriculum.
Organize Uptown is an 8-week youth-led program where participants are given a microgrant to raise awareness for an issue in their immediate community. Youth learn through experiential learning how to create a project and see it all the way through. The timeline, budget, and project outline are submitted by youth for approval. They take steps to identify the root cause of the selected issue and use tools at their disposal to raise public awareness.
