the Youth Activism Project is expanding and we need YOUR help!
We have a FREE opportunity for both students who want to increase their activism and leadership skills as well as adults who want to help them! For the 2018-2019 school year, we are matching 10 student-led groups in the US* with 10 adult volunteers who will be trained in our “collaborative coaching” approach to support their group to impact.
For students (9th to 12th grade): Click here to lead a social change project
For adults (anyone beyond high school): Click here to advise a youth-led social change project
(If you’re a student or adult that still needs some more information, please fill out this form instead to schedule an exploratory conversation with the Youth Activism Project).
All students who apply will have access to our experimental YOUth ACTivism Guide to Change, even if they don’t get matched to a coach. This guide is created for youth, by youth and is based on our process for supporting youth change-makers to be successful in their campaigns. Through this process, our youth activists have literally impacted millions of people by influencing the passage two federal and two local laws, stopping two local laws, and raising over $70,000 for their causes!
With the collaborative coaching training and the Guide to Change, the Youth Activism Project is trying something new. Your participation in this program and your feedback about your experience is critical to helping us improve and increase our impact in the future.
So what are you waiting for?! Apply today!
