Greetings URI Family,
Today, we are excited to announce the 2020 Anytown Las Vegas Impact Report. The report assesses the value we are delivering to the community and breaks down our approach to social impact at the grassroots level.
Anytown Las Vegas is a grassroots organization with a 37-year history and the longest-running Anti-racist youth program in the state of Nevada (USA). Since 1983, over 4,000 high school students have graduated from Camp ANYTOWN. We intentionally recruit students from different religious identification, spiritual expression, humanistic beliefs, racial and gender identities, socioeconomic statuses, and other identifying factors and host them for a week of learning and growing.
At Anytown, students learn about racism, racial and religious prejudice, diversity, and social justice in a nonconventional way that takes lectures and study groups out of the equation and replaces them with a hands-on approach that prioritizes group discussions, interactive workshops, and youth-led campaign building.
The program is supported by the Anytown Youth Council (AYC), a complete youth-led working board that provides strategic direction to the Anytown program and incorporates perspectives and voices of young people in each element of program planning. Learn more about our story.
