Powerful Youth, Resilient Communities

RAP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 to train youth leaders in the fight against poverty. Since then, our mission has grown to improve the quality of life for low-income youth of color across all issue areas they face: identity, relationships, health, education and safety.

We achieve our mission by developing and continually improving strengths-based, culturally responsive trainings in self-advocacy, peer community-based activism and coalition-based systems change. Our key offerings are:

  • YouthLEAP, our flagship program providing a 10-week leadership and advocacy training to NYC's most underestimated youth, culminating in community service projects that have immediate and powerful impact;
  • YouthVoiceNYC, a youth-led, year-round initiative whose current organizing platform provides eight Youth Policy Fellows with space to ​share, discover and implement meaningful campaigns for social change; and
  • YouthALIGN, our professional development program for adult supporters that run programs for youth and want to be responsive to youth needs but need guidance in how to do it.
