Youth 360: Cleveland Rape Crisis Center's Youth Programming Board
About Youth 360
Cleveland Rape Crisis Center’s Youth Programming Board, or Youth 360 for short, is a group where young leaders gain skills to become change agents and activists in their community. Students ages 14-16 learn about and create projects to educate our community (school, faith organization, youth group, etc…) on issues of sexual violence.
Youth 360 members get the chance to learn a little bit about related topics, such as oppression, gender identity, media literacy, and comprehensive sex education. Members also build skills like: program design, community activism, team building, peer communication and leadership while earning a stipend.
Youth 360 is an inclusive, youth-led violence prevention program based on resiliency theory and best practices in violence prevention. Launched by Director of Prevention Programs Alex Leslie, the program helps young people foster leadership growth, attachment to the cause of sexual violence prevention and project management skills.
