YOUTH LEADERSHIP CENTER

Sharefest was given the abandoned jail in the San Pedro Municipal Building to transform into our Youth Leadership Center (YLC). The YLC will be a safe place for youth to meet with mentors, gain leadership skills, find their voice and prepare for college and careers. Thousands of youth will enter these doors in the coming years.

The Youth Leadership Center impacts five essential areas for equipping future leaders to architect transformation:

BELONGING

Youth from diverse backgrounds build movements of understanding, friendship, and belonging in their community.

COLLABORATION

Youth collaborate and champion solutions for local community needs.

INNOVATION

Youth learn and use innovative technology skills as preparation for workplace and community leadership.

ADVOCACY

Awakened youth voices advocate awareness of local issues and promote hope to their communities.

ACHIEVEMENT

Learning opportunities and mentoring relationships prepare students to plan for and achieve their highest potential.
