RAP’s mission is to empower youth to become leaders in the fight to end poverty.

What We Do

We engage in two types of activities:

We train teens from the most disadvantaged communities to use the law to become anti-poverty peer advocates.

We also empower youth to take a leadership role in advocating to change their communities. We partner with other advocacy organizations to conduct youth-led grassroots advocacy efforts to change youth laws, policies, and agency practice.
