With a mission to build the leadership capacity of Flint, MI youth, the Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village operates 20 youth programs geared toward strengthening youth resilience and giving voice to a muted generation. In the wake of the Flint Water Crisis, this session is designed to relate the importance of community programs and the student voice in healing, and the development of youth into strong leaders.
