Youth Leadership and Empowerment

CCATE is committed to empowering our students and nurturing their leadership. We achieve this by giving our youth safe spaces to express their thoughts. True elevation of our community’s voice and experience can only be achieved when every member of our community gets a say in what kind of programs they would like to see and what CCATE will look like for the years to come. By CCATE’s nurturing of their leadership, our students become future leaders who think effectively, express themselves clearly, and closely listen to those that they lead. 

Youth leadership groups include: 

  • CCATE Reps 
  • Chicas Unidas
  • Youth Participatory Research 
  • Finding Your Voice 
  • Summer High School Summer Leadership Institute
