Youth-Led Community Organizing
What is youth-led community organizing, and what does it look like? As this series of Laidlaw Learning reports asserts, it begins with youth but its impact extends beyond them, more broadly and deeply into their communities. The design envisions youth-led community organizing as a complex and kinetic force — a power that communities can tap into, support, and cultivate for lasting and meaningful change.
Three of the 4-report series have been completed to date. Impacts & Challenges highlights both the struggles and triumphs of this approach. Strategies & Tools shares candid reflections on the organizing experiences of young people and allies, providing insight on what is working in their communities. Values Driven Work outlines the shared philosophies of youth-led community organizations.
