Join Fearless! Hudson Valley for a 4-week program that aims to inspire and empower anyone in grades 9-12 to learn and speak up about racism, bullying, gender oppression, and the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships, while also learning how to create change in the community.
Students will engage in a live virtual workshop with Fearless! educators, and small group discussions with their peers and will attend office hours in-person once a week to continue their learning with deeper conversations, team building, and hands-on activities. Students will work individually or in small groups to create a Community Action Project, where students will choose a topic that interests them take ACTION for, and discuss with peers their ideas of different action projects to bring awareness in their school, community or youth program.

This academy will take place from July 13 - August 7. Enrollment is free and is open to all Orange and Sullivan County high school students. Participants will receive 30 hours of community service and a letter of recommendation for college and/or employment. SYLA is funded the Orange County Youth Bureau.
