AT RAILROAD STREET, YOUTH TAKE THE LEAD. They explore their full potential and become equipped to meet the challenging transition to adulthood. RSYP’s professional staff expertly pairs youth-generated ideas with community resources, empowering youth to create and oversee a wide range of innovative, life-changing projects. Unmatched in mission and scope, RSYP excels in helping youth find their voice and realize the benefits of their commitment to themselves and their community.

Take a look at this amazing find from the archives!

In the early 2000’s an intergenerational group of women came together to create the Body Project. The goal was to address body issues through the art making process. Their process was planned and executed by many of the young artists involved.
