The Multicultural Leadership Project empowers refugee and immigrant youth in Aurora, Colorado. Through the program, high school students of all cultural and religious backgrounds share personal experiences, develop skills and assume leadership roles within their school community. The participation in this leadership initiative allows refugee and immigrant youth to voice and process their own cultural adjustment challenges and grow from them. The community projects will focus on helping their newly-arrived peers feel welcomed and supported in their adjustment to a new school, culture and home in the United States.

We are living in the world full of faults and issues that end up on causing pain, depression and anxiety; a world where our children grow up not loving themselves because of bullying and labeling; a world where our inner potential is lost into an education that focuses on facts and not in developing a person. RENEW brings personal growth and development into the classrooms. With this fund, RENEW will provide 3 schools in Arizona with RENEW workshops and help them discover their potential, step into their power and start living their dreams from an early age.
