GOLD IS BACK!! Gold is a leadership program for middle and high school-aged youth. Gold centers the experiences of misogyny-affected folks, but is open to young people of all genders!

This year we will explore intersectional feminism, anti-oppression, and youth leadership. Youth will build the skills to engage in social action in their communities by facilitating groups and activities on subjects they are passionate about. This is a paid opportunity.

Hi there! I am a Youth Mentor!

I volunteer with GOLD because it allows me to be part of a community within Cambridge that I choose and truly feel connected with.  The participants inspire me to be a better individual and community member each week.  I am honored to be part of such an amazing program!
