ANYTOWN 

“I have learned so many tools from ANYTOWN but the tool most important is self-confidence.”
2013 Anytown Delegate

 

Celebrating 58 years preparing youths to be the global leaders of tomorrow and today!

ANYTOWN is a nationally recognized, award winning leadership and social justice program for youth ages 14-18. Founded in 1957, ANYTOWN is designed to educate, liberate, and empower youth participants (delegates) to become effective, responsible leaders and community builders.

ANYTOWN begins when a diverse group of high school students come together for a weeklong residential experience. Through interactive games, workshops, and discussions, delegates explore topics like prejudice, discrimination, and bias. Delegates create a model for an ideal community based on respect, understanding, and inclusivity, in which members not just tolerate, but celebrate each other's differences. 

It is the goal of ANYTOWN to equip youth with the knowledge and skills to transform their home communities into places where individual differences are seen as positive tools that bring people together instead of keeping them apart.

Since the program’s inception, ANYTOWN has empowered thousands of youth across America to create inclusive, just and prejudice-free schools and communities.
