Anytown is for teens between the ages of 15 and 19.
We do accept applications from 14-year-old delegates on a case-by-case basis. Anytown covers serious and mature subject matter like violence, hate crimes and discrimination, so we want to make sure that you will feel safe and ready to handle these topics. Prerequisites for this includes but is not limited to: Former Minitown experience, previous attendance at an Anytown 1 or 2-day workshop, a phone call with a parent/ guardian, and/or requesting a recommendation letter from a teacher.
Students should be physically and emotionally capable of participating in an intense program that challenges them to discuss their experiences with, and attitudes about, human relations and social justice issues. Anytown Leadership Program, Inc. encourages people of all racial, religious, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, class, cultural, physical ability, and other identity groups to apply. There is no grade, GPA, extracurricular, income, behavioral requirement or exception. We intentionally accept a diverse class of 75 students for each session with respect to gender, sex, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, faith, class and ability.
