SEAT exists to work alongside underrepresented young people to create a SEAT at the table in their community.
We know that due to income status, neighborhood, skin color, and educational inequities, entire groups of people are left out of opportunity.
A SEAT at the table means that our young people are:
- Invited, welcomed, and engaged in all aspects of community.
- Provided the skills to build their own “table” when one does not exist.
- Trained for in demand careers and the careers of the future.
- Given the chance to have a first and second job and to build a resume.
- Included in local, State, and Federal decision making.
- Voting for officials in elected offices.
