For an excellent introduction to youth organizing, check out Resist’s March-April 2008 newsletter, “Youth Organizing Today.”
Articles include “Youth Building Movements for Change,” “Youth Fight Displacement — and Win!,” “Building the Future by Shaping the Present: Why Youth Organizing Is Critical for Positive Social Change,” and “Youth Activism Victories in 2007.”
The issue also features a list of resources for youth organizing that includes Highlander’s own Seeds of Fire Youth Leadership Training Program, as well as the Center for Third World Organizing, Project Hip-Hop, the School of Unity and Liberation, and Student Action for Farmworkers.
Resist has been supporting organizing and education for social change for over 40 years. You can learn more about their work www.resistinc.org.
