Review from Guidestar
March 9, 2012

 With over two years of planning and implementation as a club member and youth development professional at the Greater Kalamazoo Boys and Girls Club and a board member with New Latino Visions. The Institute for New Leadership leveraged youth and adult leadership in communities. The purpose is to enhance organizational leadership and engage in strategic planning that advances equality in Southwest Michigan. Through multiculturalism, education, youth and community development programs and the opportunity to work with multiple cultural teams that are unified and committed to improving our communities social equalities.
The demand for “unity” and “commitment” to learning, collaboration, and opportunity has been extremely important. In my opinion the years spent advocating “unity” and “commitment” in our region and throughout the world have been some of the most important years of my life.
The opportunity New Latino Visions and Boys and Girls Clubs have given me to share and value the visions, unity, and commitment to equality of our new youth leaders, they definitely took me for an amazing ride. There is one specific conversation I had with a group of youth that I will never forget. The group explained that the diversity of the young brings harmony. The group explained that they don't and refuse to live in the same generic (census) box that the older generations have created. Instead of limiting our youth based on the importance and value being placed on one's nationality, gender, skin color, age, etc. The youth expressed an emphasis on "Staying You" and it is the value of each individual that makes you unique.
To develop the social justice paradigm youth leaders investigated why certain cultures acted the way they do and how we as a society can share the power and influence of multiple customs. Being taught by the youth, the group learned how to avoid misconceptions, counterproductive behavior, and boost multicultural morale. I realized just how rational and necessary the #NewYouthVisions have become. The YOUTH overcame century old stereotypes and obvious slips in our nations history. With a new vision, a new mindset, and a greater understanding of diversity. A “understanding” so great, that all-inclusiveness will out weigh the counterparts of reverse discrimination. The result: a mind, heart, and body of YOUTH that respects a wide range of cultural and individual differences. #NewYouthVisions at http://newlatinovisions.vpweb.com/About-Us.html
