Hello. My name is Carrington Amey and I am the newest addition to the RAP team. My passion and desire to be a catalyst for change have led me to the Resilience Advocacy Project. Through my own life experiences I have seen first-hand the inadequacies of a flawed system. A system that continues to victimize and disenfranchise at-risk youth and families at an alarming rate. Aligning myself with RAP’s mission, I plan to provide these once-disenfranchised communities with the skills to become their own advocates of change. I am excited to be a part of the RAP initiative to bring about social change and push for equal opportunities. I will be an asset to the organization by bringing the perspective of a resilient young person into our various outreach programs. Also through my background as an organizer and peer group leader I will be able to make myself accessible and open to the needs of our youth in our quest for social change.
