Social Media Camp.
To kick of the year with growing in our communities, Urban Legacy partnered with the Yonkers YMCA to provide a social media camp to black teens and young adults. Black influencers are the highest paid social media influencers, but still face exclusion on some platforms. We are introducing our youth to influencers and exploring this emerging career path while building channels.
