Youth Leadership Development Programs

We provide year-round youth leadership opportunities, known as STAMP programs, for 7th-12th graders interested in developing their leadership, activism, allyship, and more.

What is STAMP?


To be a STAMP student leader means to be a part of something larger; to be a changemaker, an upstander, a guide for others, to lead in creating inclusive, culturally responsive communities.

Get connected with other changemakers by participating in our Fall Conference or Summer Camps.

The STAMP Student Journey

Every STAMP program builds on each other through an identity journey. This scaffolding guides students to develop a multifaceted understanding of their leadership and how to spark positive change in their communities.

Students who take part in STAMP learn how to take action and make progress rooted in practices of self & community care, healing, and wellness.

Starting at STAMP Conference

The STAMP Conference is often the entry point for middle school students into our programs. This experience introduces 7th and 8th graders to conversations led by near-peers, H.S. STAMP Leaders, around issues of social justice and community building.

Participating in STAMP Camps

The STAMP camps give incoming 9th grade students through graduating high school leaders an opportunity to engage more deeply in culturally responsive dialogue, personal development, and transformational leadership.
