Youth-powered conversations for change

WeLead 2016WeLead is a collaboration between Oregon Humanities and Catlin Gabel's PLACE program that trains high school students to lead community conversations about challenging issues. In 2016, fourteen students from seven Portland-area high schools participated in five training sessions focused on reflective discussion. The trainings culminated in a final event on the topic "Politics: Why You Should Care—An Insight into the 2016 Election."

WeLead will return to the CENTER in North Portland in fall 2017. WeLead is open to students from all Portland-area high schools in their sophomore through senior years. Students will be compensated for time spent in the WeLead program with a $200 honorarium. Application information and other details will be announced soon.

WeLead is made possible in part thanks to the support of the Leotta Gordon Foundation.
