The Community Development Technologies Center (CDTech) is a race equity and economic justice organization confronting issues of concentrated poverty produced by historic racial inequality.
CDTech’s “Y-LEAD: Success Pathways for South-Central LA Youth” increases leadership capacity, educational attainment and career development among vulnerable youth.
“I am a good fit for CDTech because I want to improve my leadership skills. CDTech will give me the opportunity to enhance both my people and my leadership skills because of the procedures we will be conducting in the program. For example, going door-to-door enhances both skills I want to build on because I am conversing with people of my community and educating them on how they may build their desired expertise and get a successful job or even career. Leadership skills are important to be because when I go off to college, I want to be my own person and encourage others who may not be as confident to let their voices be heard. I also believe that CDTech is an opportunity for me all around to engage better in activity.”
