"If you have come to help me you are wasting your time. But, if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together." -Aboriginal activist group, Queensland, 1970's

What is CLP?

CLP creates safe and engaging spaces for young people and their allies to

- Develop their whole selves

- Address local and global community issues

- Recognize and cultivate personal and collective power

- Build relationships and mentorship sin fronteras

- Access the tools necessary to transform their own lives in community and collaboration with others

We firmly believe that poverty anywhere impacts the right and ability to human flourishing for all individuals. We believe that a just “global village” will require a multi-dimensional process that involves real social and economic investment transcending national borders, that is grounded in community-to-community action, and is sustained by relationships of shared power that encourage innovation, participation, and honor the inherent worth and dignity of all people involved.

CLP has been selected to be highlighted on the MTVu Dean's List-- a special "spotlight" on CGIU Commitments to Action that include an introduction of the team members and a music video that highlights their work.

This year's team has selected Ben Harper's, "With My Own Two Hands." You can watch the video here.

In 2009, CLP has also been acknowledged on-stage at the event as an "exemplary approach to addressing a specific global challenge." CLP was then awarded the "Outstanding Commitment Award" with a $4,000 grant to continue its programming throughout Summer and Winter of 2009.

CLP Yard Sale II - October 17, 2009

Child Leader Project, Inc. is in the process of selling donated items at our second yard sale for 2009. We have currently made $145 dollars towards our goal of $200. At the crack of dawn Samantha, Jessica and Maurine were up and at um to set everything up. Jessica with her bilingual skills and enthusiastic energy helped us move many items before 7AM. Samantha and her generous family helped to keep pulling out favored items for sale. The donuts and cold drinks are starting to go fast. Toby and Emily finally showed up to help answer questions and give moral support. Everyone, thank you for the donations so we have things to sell...we appreciate it all.

We are so grateful for the chance to start a new fundraising year for another summer in India. Join us two times a year for our sales - in April and October each year to raise funds. Every dollar counts!
