IN A NUTSHELL
When L.I.G.H.T. was founded, it originally featured 6 programs, each with a different social justice focus: Books Before Looks (literacy and self image), Change Starts Today (leadership development), Leaders for LibHERty (gender equality and feminism), One Child One World (education, refugees and immigrants), Spark Health (mental and physical wellbeing) and Start Small (community building and mentorship).
In 2019, L.I.G.H.T. introduced its new model: the Fellowship Program. Now, youth explore their own passions and skills sets, and identify areas of need in the community. Then they apply themselves to develop unique and creative initiatives to improve their society. L.I.G.H.T. still cares for those core social justice issues, only it allows Youth to become more proactive in creating change.
