GenZ has really boosted my confidence and I am a lot more comfortable sharing ideas with other people. It has provided a space in which I feel safe and appreciated, and has given me something to look forward to all week. I learned a lot!

It has been really inspiring watching the young people take the training we've given them and use the skills to develop campaigns on issues they are passionate about. They have worked really hard and have so much knowledge and insight into the issues they've chosen.
