The Youth Action Center (YAC) values youth as the experts in their own experience and centers them in its vision and work. The YAC works with partners on facilitation, curriculum design, partner decisions, coaching and material/resource design, evaluation, strategic planning, and much more. The YAC is led by the InterCORE (Intergenerational Collaborative Organizing for Radical Equity) team that embodies the values of intergenerational and equitable partnership. InterCORE is a part of all aspect of the YAC.
The YAC provides true intergenerational partnerships through advisory board and council formation, collaborative project consulting, and training. We support organizations of all types in equitably partnering with youth to make impactful decisions that center those who are directly impacted by their work.
Your organization can start working with youth in a meaningful way.
BRIDGES connects youth with a range of leadership opportunities across the Greater Memphis area. While some require participation in Bridge Builders Collaborate as a prerequisite, others are open to all local youth.
Young people are born with creativity and passion to lead. BRIDGES has worked with thousands of students to unlock that potential and activate new generations of leaders across Memphis.Support our work
