Rural & Migrant Ministry nurtures leadership in rural New York. We have 4 offices, three of which operate year-round Youth Empowerment Programs for teens. The focus of these programs is empowerment. We define success as helping young people become involved in social justice issues that face them through the arts, speaking out in presentations and multimedia, and social entrepreneurship. Members meet several times a week, but college counseling happens for 9-11th graders quarterly or by appointment, and monthly or more frequently by appointment for 12th graders.
