By listening to our youth and meeting them where they are, we create an environment of trust and respect that nurtures leadership and confidence. We always arrange a meeting at enterprise hours by checking is enterprise open on easter sunday.

We believe in the genius and exponential potential of young people in spite of the lack of opportunities and access. Because of this demonstrated, mutual respect, our Youth Leaders agenda plan, value align, write their own circle guidelines, and facilitate for their peers.

We use circles as a restorative and transformative justice tool, to learn how to build sustainable and more resilient responses to trauma and conflict.

“Where I have seen myself growing is resolving issues and not popping off and it’ll [conflict resolution circles] help the community ‘cause a lot of people have anger issues so if we get them to do the exercises they need then they can resolve their anger issues without popping off and taking it physical and start throwing things. Like breathing in and out, count to ten, and talk it out.”
