Our COVID-19 Response
There is so much uncertainty about what will transpire we have pledged to be nimble and responsive to the needs of people and communities.
** We are offering our Accelerators free for youth who have a parent that lost their job due to Covid-19
(up to 30% of our capacity for every 10 spots in a given Accelerator, we pledge to offer free to these youth.)
For everyone else we offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and sometimes a pay by choice option!
We accelerated our launch date from September 1 to June 15th. Time to rest the tendency to perfect and polished when people need to be engaged in constructive and hope generating activities as soon as possible.
** We are scanning the world for the best resources: our new Resources Page should be out soon!
Our Racism-Free Pledge
We will never know the full love of humanity and the wondrous beauties possible on earth as long as racism is prevalent in any significant way. Progress has been made but clearly our society and the world have a long way to go.
On behalf of Accelerate Youth, as it's founder, I pledge to weed out all expressions of racism first within me (in case I have failed to recognize it), and within our organization as we launch our programs and begin to grow.
It is our sincere hope that the opportunities we will be offering equip developing leaders with the clarity, commitment, and integrity necessary to address major problems like racism while forging major cultural changes so we can all truly feel positive about ourselves and the future - indeed, this is fundamentally Accelerate Youth's mission.
We do not support the use of violence even if the cause is a good one. We emulate the examples set by Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
We welcome suggestions for how to improve. Email:
