Youth Program





Our intergenerational approach to organizing is anchored on the conviction that those most directly impacted by inequity are in the best position to lead us to long-term transformative changes. Our youth program stems from our understanding that young people are ready to lead if given the opportunity and necessary support. 


The Dolores Huerta Foundation Youth Program consists of two components, Liberated Youth for Empowerment (LYFE) & Livin’ LYFE. These programs offer young people opportunities to develop a critical lens on history and systems of inequity and empower each young person as they transition to a social justice warrior by providing them the tools and resources every step of the way.

LYFE incorporates three vital pathways for personal and professional development: Civic Engagement, Transformational Art, and New Media & Technology. This immersive leadership program includes a pathway crafted to meet the intersection of community engagement and health/wellness all while amplifying the voices of our future leaders. Once graduated from LYFE, youth leaders enter the “Livin’ LYFE” alumni program, where they build community and empower the next generations of social justice warriors. Livin’ LYFE provides monthly programming, mentorship, scholarship and entrepreneurship opportunities/resources that will support alumni on their journey for social justice and professional development.
