Momentum Alliance: Inspiring Youth

Be a Leader, Be Yourself


Momentum Alliance is a place for young people 14-30 who want to:

  • Build trust, confidence, resiliency and health
  • Increase their educational and income levels
  • Learn and practice leadership and advocacy skills
  • Build friendships and alliances with young people they wouldn’t typically hang out with
  • Diversify decision-making in the public, private and nonprofit sectors; alter relations of power; and make systems more equitable

Perhaps most importantly, Momentum Alliances offers a space for young people to be themselves, in all their identities.
