HYA Mission

Haitian Youth Action is a youth empowerment and media activism program, which equips young women and girls to raise awareness about the Haitian community’s most pressing concerns, through engagement with community media and cultural activities. HYA provides them an opportunity to voice their views on global and local issues through artistic expression. Girls in this empowerment media activism program meet out-of-school to learn radio and video production and conduct screenings. HWHR hopes to embolden the next generation of Haitian-Americans to seek better opportunities for higher education and instill hope for their future as scholars.
