Short Response Questions

Your privacy is important to us. The YLC is a diverse group; some youth are survivors themselves, some have people they care about who are survivors, and some apply to the YLC for the opportunity to be activists for social justice and to help their communities. We understand that a lot of people come to the YLC from their own experiences. If you do, you’ll have an opportunity to talk if you want, but please keep in mind that this application is not 100% confidential. Thank you!
