Grounded in our commitment to peace, unity and justice, the mission of Youth Together is to address the root causes of educational inequities by developing multiracial youth leaders and engaging school community allies to promote positive school change.
We do research, as well as create and provide political education to our students across sites. We believe that youth are integral to creating lasting change in our communities, and make sure that we equip our students with the tools they need to think critically.
Our students learn the value of community first hand through the outreach work that we do. We strive to give our students the opportunity to lead their community, but first make sure that they are grounded in the skills.
While we teach our students that the community is the first place to organize, we also make sure to arm our students with the advocacy skills they need to make broad and institutionalized changes to better the experiences of their peers.
