SAHARA encourages youth to be agents of change. Youth are uniquely positioned to engage their peers, family, and the broader South Asian community in discussions and to take action on pertinent social justice issues. SAHARA offers tools and resources with the goal of equipping the next generation of leaders to challenge the status quo and positively impact their communities.
This six-week summer program provides an opportunity for youth to discuss and learn about social justice topics including discrimination, cultural identity, and healthy relationships. At the end of the session, youth will lead a summit and spark an ongoing dialogue with the community about their learnings, insights, and action plan for social change.
