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.

POLITICAL EDUCATION

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.

COMMUNITY ORGANIZING

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.

EDUCATIONAL CHANGE

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.

Youth Together

Unity Day is an annual Youth Together event put on by our very own youth and community. Unity Day began in 2001 as a way to respond to racial tensions, to build solidarity within schools, and to promote peace within our community. Unity Days are way for our community to come together and arm our students with knowledge & tools they need to fight for our collective liberation.

Each year we choose a new theme that fits best for the school year. This year's Theme: Each One, Teach One: Knowledge is Power.

Each One, Teach One is a community ideology that is embedded within all of our communities, but popularized during American slavery, where it was illegal for enslaved Africans to learn or teach literacy. Even in the midst violent and life-costing conditions, those that were able to learn during enslavement secretly and strategically taught their community as a way to empower both their minds and spirits, and pave the way toward their own spiritual, mental, and physical liberation.

Each One, Teach One is a community-centered call-to-action that reminds us that every one of us has a stake in our collective freedom. As a community, it is our responsibility to equip ourselves and each other with the necessary tools and skillsets, intergenerational knowledge, and healing practices to reclaim our individual and collective power.
