Leadership — NCAAT’s youth leadership pipeline will empower students and young people in the triangle area to become the next generation of leaders through developing hard and soft skills for personal and professional development and connecting them to NCAAT’s expansive professional network.
Engagement — An integral piece of NCAAT’s youth work is to engage young people in their own communities through service and hands-on involvement as well as encouraging all levels of political participation and civic engagement. By encouraging critical thinking and problem solving, youth will have the opportunity to be engaged in all levels of NCAAT’s work.
Action — Beyond passing on the skills and resources for young people to become leaders, NCAAT’s youth program encourages youth to use their newly gained skills to advocate and organize themselves and their communities by creating their own campaigns and projects. This will empower NCAAT youth to put their knowledge and skills into action for social change.
