Why We do What We do

When young people in historically oppressed communities are looking for truth, power and collective liberation---they come to PV. We create spaces with youth that promote critical thought learning and explorations of power, and social justice. We provide the language, knowledge and tools to ensure that the emerging majority are not afraid to confront, to listen, to see the world unveiled and reimagine new possibilities for the future. We have confidence our youth’s ability to think, to want, and to know and we help them build confidence and trust in themselves.

Before the emerging majority can dismantle systems of oppression, they must learn how those systems were designed, how they function, and how we feed their existence knowingly and unknowingly. We cannot “fix” systems that work as they were designed to work but we can imagine and create new systems when we have diverse leaders who see beyond what they have been “programmed” to see.
