ELEVATE Youth Group
ELEVATE Emerging Leaders Ending Violence Against Teens Everywhere (ELEVATE) is KAN-WIN's youth leadership group. ELEVATE exists for young Asian American girls, non-binary people, and allies ages 13-19 to provide a space for educational opportunities and dialogue about issues, including gender-based violence and gender justice, that impact us and society at large. By establishing a safe space, ELEVATE allows members to foster meaningful relationships with peers and equips young people with the knowledge and vocabulary to create change in their communities. ELEVATE meetings generally revolve around an interactive and educational workshop and are held during the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from 1-3PM.

Youth Peer Advocate Leadership Program
The Youth Peer Advocate Leadership (YPAL) Program is a seven-session program aimed to educate and build leadership skills for youth and young adults, foster conversations with other young people interested in combating gender-based violence, and explore ways to contribute to the anti-violence movement. YPAL participants will receive in-depth training in gender-based violence, root causes of violence, intersectionality, supporting survivors, and community organizing while cultivating allies through peer to peer education. The YPAL Program is offered during the summer session in late June to late July. Participants are eligible to receive service hours or a stipend upon completion of the training.
Youth Peer Advocate Leadership Internship
Youth Peer Advocate Leadership Internship offers an optional internship where participants work together to develop and implement a project that addresses issues of gender-based violence within the community. The YPAL Internship takes place after the summer session of YPAL training from late July to early August and is only eligible for those who have completed YPAL training. Participants are eligible to receive service hours or a stipend upon completion of the internship.
