Hi Elizabeth, that's a great question! From a financial standpoint, we take significant steps to keep costs low. For instance, we make agreements with institutions to use their space for reduced costs or for free when we are hosting events. We currently have all mentors volunteer their time. From a logistics standpoint, we are recruiting students from other schools who are familiar with the concept and training them extensively to prepare them for the fall.
Thank you so much! I definitely agree; one of the great parts about this program is that it also invites discussion on issues that affect youth from different communities in the same way - which builds avenues of solidarity.
