Where Youth Lead
Working through our cascading mentorship program to build youth capacities. Pre-workforce development, academic coaching and arts/sports enrichment, and community service are the three pillars of Trybe's youth development. Trybe's cascading mentorship program provides a space where youth participate in and lead various afterschool clubs. Youth are placed in positions of responsibility and places where they can grow socially and emotionally, while learning new skills. The students are paired with parent-leaders, teachers and staff to oversee various activities, like Bike Maintenance, Sports, Chess, Computer, Math and Science clubs.
Youth mentors have initiated and led different events in the past. Youth led projects have included Clean-Water storm drain clean-up, Art and Safety Turtle Signs, the 2017 Multi-Faith Calendar and more!
