YOUTH PEERS BUILDING JUSTICE (PBJ) PROGRAM
Peers Building Justice (PBJ) is an after-school youth program serving middle and high school students in Boulder Valley School District. Through art, education, and community engagement, PBJ members explore issues important to their lives. PBJ youth organizers examine the ways relationship violence and sexual assault are sustained by systems of power and oppression. The PBJ program intends to support youth by promoting social justice and working collectively to end violence in our communities.
