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.

Happy Indigenous Heritage Month!

Bringing back a great article from earlier this year about identifying native lands in the US.

"It helps plant a seed that there's people here before you, these are the lands that they're on, and they're still here."

Hey community!

If you haven’t heard, Oakland is a major port of commerce. What comes through and how it’s shipped affect our communities greatly, so we must be careful and steadfast about making sure that pollutants and other maladies aren’t concentrated in our city.

Oakland youth have been organizing for a long while to stop the City from condoning a coal terminal in Oakland, which would bring much more hazardous waste and pollution into already highly polluted areas. Stand with them today as our youth fight for clean air & their future!
