Identity Girl Smiling at CameraAs an advocate, you can help create opportunities for Latino youth and families to reach their highest potential.

All youth in Montgomery County should have the same resources, supports and opportunities as other young people in their county.

We invite you to join us in changing lives and changing the systems that perpetuate disparities and barriers to access.

Use your voice — and your vote — to help create systems change.

Many of the problems Identity aims to solve through direct services are rooted in systems — policies, procedures, regulations, practices and attitudes — not in individuals. As an advocate for systems change, you can be an ally and a champion for youth who face tremendous challenges but who also have tremendous potential.
