SYLC members act as peer leaders and work to educate themselves and other youth about healthy relationships, respect, and other issues that are important to teens.
SYLC members facilitate discussions about respect, bullying, oppression, and taking action using SYLC's video toolkit.
Healthy relationship education
SYLC members plan and organize educational workshops for their peers, and often attend events where they can speak or facilitate activities about healthy relationships. They also help give healthy relationship classes with SAFV's school director at the high schools in Sitka.

SYLC's media toolkiit
SYLC's media toolkit is a video that the Sitka Youth Leadership Committee members share their thoughts, experiences and the importance of respect, a sense of belonging and interrupting oppression. By doing this they hope to inspire discussions about these topics. And hopefully, if enough people talk and spread this message, it can make a difference.
We can share this toolkit with interested groups at a small fee to cover shipping. Please contact Julia at if you are interested.
