Prior to offering the El Puente Leadership Academy, we hosted the Youth Allies Program. Youth Allies was a year-long program with Santa Fe youth and offered youth opportunities to organize a community action project, educate their peers, work on grassroots campaigns, and more! We no longer host the Youth Allies program, however, we continue to empower youth in our community through El Puente & our campaign work!
