Future LEADERS, Today

The next generation of civil rights leaders find a home and support at NAACP. These youth bring the vibrancy and unique perspective that continues our legacy of advocating for Black lives.


The next generation of civil rights leaders is making waves now. Young people under the age of 25 are leading change through 550 junior youth councils, youth councils, high school chapters, and college chapters actively involved in the fight for civil rights and social justice.
