John Lewis Young Leaders

John Lewis Young Leaders is a network of youth advocates on college campuses around the nation. The program empowers students to become politically active and to advance human rights and social justice in their communities.

Each chapter of John Lewis Young Leaders is student-founded and student-run. Through workshops and coaching, RFK Human Rights provides the training, tools, and resources students need to organize community action and, in the process, gain skills and experience that prepare them to rise through local systems of power. These students have led initiatives including get-out-the-vote drives, free HIV testing on campuses, and clothing drives to benefit shelters for homeless youth.
