We simply can't do the work alone.

When You Give, You Invest

We simply can't do the work alone and your commitment of time, talent, or treasure isn't just a gift, it's an investment for the future.

Our commitment to inclusiveness and belonging is directly aligned with our commitment to provide equitable programs. We strive to ensure that all our programs are accessible with minimal to no cost, and we never turn away a student due to any barriers they may encounter. 

By supporting 21CL, you are helping to sustain our effort to provide a quality youth leadership development program, while supplying essential funds for:

Program fees for low-income youth

Experiential, hands-on learning opportunities

Program expansion, materials and curriculum

Means to take advantage of unexpected learning and enrichment opportunities

Financial security to meet unforeseen challenges throughout the year

Staff professional development opportunities

When You Give, You Inspire

Never forget the power of one.
One donation, one volunteer moment, one partnering program can change the life of not just one student, but hundreds.
