Emerging Leaders Program: Midwest

Emerging Leaders - Midwest
500 youth converged in Cleveland, OH for Midwest Power Shift, October 2011. The conference, planned and facilitated by youth, featured dynamic workshops on climate leadership, activism, and resources, keynote speakers including David Orr, Lois Gibbs, Phil Radford and Rev. David Bullock, and a non-violent direct action in opposition to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.

In partnership with the RE-AMP network, the Will Steger Foundation is committed to engaging, and empowering youth leaders on climate change solutions across the Midwest through access to high profile decision makers, funding resources, mentorship, and training and leadership opportunities. Will Steger Foundation Youth Programs Director, Abby Fenton, also serves as the REAMP Youth Coordinator.
