    CLI is a social justice leadership program for high school-age youth who want to work to understand injustice in the world and take positive action in their schools and communities.   Through the generous support of Just Communities, Central Coast, One Step A La Vez was able to send 5 youth representatives to CLI. Youth stayed in an 8-day residential program at Rancho La Scherpa in Santa Barbara.  CLI brings together 48 diverse young people to explore their identities, confront their prejudices, learn how to recognize and counter inequality, gain advocacy skills, and acquire tools to become proactive leaders. 

Congratulations to the Class of 2011 CLI graduates:  Julian Murillo, Francisco Enriquez, Addie Ramirez, Christian Minero, and Oscar Negrete.
