AS PART OF A GLOBAL NETWORK
Founder and CEO
As a low-income young black person, receiving a scholarship from YCL was tremendous to my career.
The experience boosted my expertise in climate change, in particular, social and climate justice, climate litigation and environmental racism. The access to the YCL Network allowed me to establish contacts and partnerships in the area of climate change, as well as, access to job vacancies, events and even mentoring.
YCL aims to democratize their spaces by increasing representation of black and low-income people, therefore deserves full support and visibility in their actions.
