Please join me in supporting RAP’s important work by attending the RAP 2017 Summer Solstice Celebration on June 21st!


Ticket sales open on May 10th!


By donating today, you become part of a network of people who believe that young people in the city's most under-resourced communities can be leaders of positive social change!

RAP’s youth go beyond just the ideas of how to address social issues in their communities: they put their ideas into action through incredible, innovative community-based initiatives!

Check out some examples of the impact of some of RAP’s amazing youth leaders!


A team of youth in our summer YouthLEAP program filmed a role play to highlight the importance of quality guidance counseling in accessing higher education. Check it out:

Other groups got creative in their work advocating against dating violence, creating t-shirts and buttons to share information and resources! https://d3n8a8pro7vhmx.cloudfront.net/rap/pages/139/attachments/original/1478201480/CIP_Collage.jpg?1478201480

Other examples of impact projects that your donation will support include: teen-led help desks in homeless shelters, peer education workshops to increase access to mental health services, and teen-designed youth courts in schools!

Join the campaign today by making a donation and spreading the word! Together we can support the impact of youth who are making our city - and our world - a better place!
