Youth are not the future; they are the present.
RunDSM is comprised of 6 programs: Share the Mic: Community Voices Creating Change, Minorities on the Move, Hip-Hop: Rhetoric & Rhyme, Movement 515, and Urban Leadership 101 + 102.
Mission: We support and empower students on their journey to becoming community-based activists, providing them a platform to be heard.
Vision: To shift the perception of youth by fighting illiteracy, discrimination, and silence, allowing them a greater part in the conversation for change.
Please consider making a tax-free donation to support the programming of RunDSM. Through the use of various mediums such as the written and spoken word, performance-based literacy, oral history, and youth + community summits, we will establish an on-going, entrepreneurial and philanthropic platform for youth to be heard. With your help, students will positively impact their community and the world at large.
