Ricardo Jaramillo, BRYTE Summer Camp for Refugees

The Refugee Youth Power Summit is a one-week intensive program for refugee youth who are or will be in high school in 2017. The summit, which will take place from August 10th to 17th,  has three main goals: to bring together young leaders in the refugee community, to cultivate critical ideas and tools necessary for creating social change, and finally to engage in collective advocacy and action.  

Now more than ever, supporting the political empowerment of young people who are marginalized in our society is crucial. THANK YOU for giving what you can to our new movement!

“Ever since I was young, I knew that I wanted to make the world a better place. I saw death, poverty, war, and hatred and I wanted to make it a happy and loving place. As I got older, I learned that I couldn’t change the world all by myself. I learned that if I wished to change the world, I’d have to be able to change with my community and those around me. I truly believe that I can change the world, but not by myself. Having help from others and teaching others how to bring change with those around them is what will help spread love. This Summit is a way to being to bring that change in our communities. It will be a big step towards to bettering the world because it will teach youth how to become leaders in our community and how stand up for what they believe in. This is why I want to make the summit happen.”
