Welcome to our new site familia! We hope you find this space helpful in learning more about us and our work.
Da Urban Butterflies Youth Leadership Development Project (D.U.B) is a membership-based young women’s orgnanization which was founded on October 2004. Our aim is to contribute to the positive development of young women and girls.
D.U.B was born in and has actively been a part of the Washington Heights community. Over the years we have impacted the lives of thousands of youth, and have engaged in solidarity projects locally, nationally and internationally. Through youth leadership development, capacity building, as well as community organizing and mobilizing we are committed to changing the world … a block at a time.
If you have kept abreast of our journey, we thank you and invite you to continue on this journey de lucha and growth with us. If you just recently found out about us, we invite you to get to know us. We most definitely want the opportunity to get to know you and build sisterhood.
We look forward to continue walking this difficult, yet rewarding path of building community and creating alternatives of hope in our communities, with all those who are committed to social justice.
