The thoughtfulness and groundedness in the organization makes me excited to make my mark and also grow within the org. I believe my radical imagination can thrive here resulting in nourishing the youth I work with. Thus in turn resulting in a symbiotic relationship of growth and trust. 

My role in the zombie apocalypse would be a community organizer and urge my group of trusted friends and family to stick together. However, I might end up actually being a zombie and then infect my community so we can survive as zombies!

 

Our Mission
