Resilience Advocacy Project (RAP) works to empower youth to become leaders in the fight to end poverty. We work directly with teens to give them the confidence, problem-solving and leadership skills to design and implement real-world solutions to entrenched social problems. At the same time, we conduct research and advocacy initiatives aimed at improving the policies and government systems that shape youth resilience. RAP is developing the social justice leaders of tomorrow. We are building a growing movement of resilient youth equipped and inspired to make sure that poverty in one generation does not predict poverty in the next. Certain values lie at the core of our mission. These principles guide the development of our organization, programs, and system-level change efforts.
