Young People For (YP4)

This is a great opportunity for all students! It is highly encouraged that students check out this event and RSVP for the information session on Monday, March 31st.

YP4 (4)Dear Students,

Young People For (YP4), a leadership development program that helps a diverse set of young leaders turn their ideals into actions that advance social justice, is recruiting students from UW-Green Bay! Over the course of one year, YP4 develops Fellows’ leadership capacity and strategic thinking through a capstone project—the Blueprint for Social Justice—and offers numerous opportunities to organize and network with other young people and partner organizations creating change across the country.

YP4 will be on campus Monday, March 31st from 1:00-3:00PM to meet with students and answer your questions about the program. YP4 staff will be at an Information Table from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the University Union, Phoenix Club Booth and will then host an info session in University Union Room 103 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. To RSVP for the Information Session, please navigate to the following link and click on “Register for Event” to RSVP in PRO- https://www.myinterfase.com/uwgb/event_view.aspx?token=RxyKLyfnGsbmu+BkaCtdig%3d%3d

To get a glimpse of what the program is like and what it has to offer, watch YP4’s 2-minute promotional video.  The Fellowship year maps on almost entirely with the academic year, meaning Fellows do much of their social justice work while in school. From summer to spring, Fellows work on their leadership development and Blueprints with the help of personalized staff and mentor assistance. Fellows will also attend a Regional Training and the National Summit in Washington, DC to learn concrete the skills necessary to implementing sustainable change.

When accepted to the program, Fellows receive access to:

  • Trainings, resources, and tools to win on the issues they are most passionate about.
  • One-on-one mentoring from YP4 staff and other progressive movement leaders as they design and implement a sustainable, community-driven action plan.
  • Networking opportunities with established progressive organizations and thought leaders at the local, regional, and national levels.
