SHOREline is a youth empowerment program that seeks to provide an opportunity to make fundamental changes in the lives of youth, their families, their communities, and beyond.
Informed by stories and data collected from the Gulf Coast Population Impact Project, we created the SHOREline Project with the support of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation to give youth a voice—and a platform—for encouraging their own recovery and the recovery of those around them.
The five pioneering chapters in the Gulf Coast will spend the school year building tools to help youth and communities recover from a disaster. The projects that students work on will develop their organizational, communication, and leadership skills. Students will have opportunities to engage with local and national leaders and innovators and to travel to two Gulf Coast college campuses for Youth Summits. Shoreline is run by Columbia University in partnership with the Center for Disaster and Risk Analysis at Colorado State University, and is supported by Local, National and Youth Advisory boards.
