STRONG CITY

A new way for cities to share resources and empower underserved youth. Strong City is a 501(c)(3) supporting organizations on the ground that are leading the way. 

 

We believe that the future of our cities depends on our youth. That support and guidance are rights, not luxuries. And that every city can be a Strong City.
