About NAN Youth Huddle
The NAN Youth Huddle is a youth and young adult initiative centered around community service, STEM training, civic engagement, health and wellness, self-empowerment, performing arts, and mentorship under the umbrella of Rev. Al Sharpton’s national civil rights organization, The National Action Network.
NAN’s Huddle initiative, founded by Ashley Sharpton after the non-indictment of George Zimmerman in 2013, holds meetings every Monday, where the medium is raw and honest conversation.
Each week we focus on a different pressing topic and review monthly goals. Young adults who want to contribute to their community and engage in meaningful discussions with tomorrow’s leaders should attend. Parents, teachers and mentors are welcome as well.
