New Papers: Community Organizing and Youth Development
[posted from Public Education Network newsblast]
COMMUNITY ORGANIZING + YOUTH DEVELOPMENT = YOUTH ORGANIZING
A new series of four papers from the Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organizing explores the influences of community organizing and youth development on youth organizing; characteristics common to youth organizing and three primary issue areas around which youth organizing efforts are focused: public school reform, criminal justice, and environmental justice; and discusses the nexus of youth development and youth organizing, and the promise of youth organizing in yielding both individual transformations and social change. In addition, an appendix
presents a digest of research and reports, reflections from the field, and youth organizing curricula and toolkits.
