We Empower Youth

MGR believes that young people possess the power to change their communities. An empowered youth is someone who understands the larger system, retains the skills to tackle the problem, and utilizes opportunities to create real community change. It is MGR’s duty to equip our students with knowledge, skill, and opportunity, and to work with these young leaders as partners and allies.
