The Pueblo Power Program is a leadership development program that provides a clear process for preparing youth to take active roles within the organization and to provide a path for deeper engagement and leadership opportunities to take action in the community.

The Pueblo Power Program engages Latinx youth so as to become leaders of community change. The project focuses on preparing both youth and adults as active and effective participants in intergenerational partnerships.

The program consists of:

  • Monthly skills-building workshops on topics like systems of oppression, community organizing, media literacy, public speaking, and civic engagement for a core group of about 15-25 Latino youth

  • Youth-led actions that are connected to their learning through workshops as well as broader El Pueblo campaigns and collaborations.

    Eligibility requirements:

    1. Youth in High School
    2. Attend 100% of all trainings throughout the year (2 per Month- Jan thru end of May)
    3. Participate in El Pueblo events
    4. Participate in at least one advocacy action during this program
    5. Have a parent/guardian attend Orientation Night and Graduation Ceremony
