Equity Centered Youth Action That Contributes To Shaping
Healthy, Vibrant, Resilient Communities.
Next Generation Leadership
projectVATU is a fun, energetic and engaging atmosphere where teens feel connected and supported, and discover a strong sense of belonging. It is carefully designed to equip youth with the confidence that they need to be self-motivated learners, resilient and skilled leaders; and to expose them to premier resume building opportunities for college, career and for life.
This program is a collaboration between the Public Health Department, Human Impact Partnership (HIP), Bay Area Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII), and Club Stride, Inc.
Using media technology, we nurture competence and capacity for students to thrive in any learning environment, and to demonstrate personal excellence daily. This is a life skills-based project to help students further develop (not only knowledge about leadership and civics, but the social life skills they will need) to inform and carry out leadership behaviors in every area of their lives.
“During my brief internship with the organization...I was exposed to the process of content creation...In college I plan to major in screenwriting and film production...I believe my time at Club Stride has helped prepare me.”
