Mentor youth activists to bring about radical change3 months, 1 week ago | 0 Replies
Being products of the internet age, the youth of today are leveraging social media to educate themselves and their peers on topics ranging from gun violence, to climate change to racial justice. They have carved a digital space for themselves to freely engage in activism. Be it to stir up debates and discussion using hashtags and other online trends or to spread information about protests and rallies, youth activists have been the key actors behind social media activism. Yet as social change makers they are not taken seriously by adults. They deserve to be listened to, to be seen as collaborators and treated as equals. If given an opportunity to work alongside adults who are willing to manage their power, youth activists have the potential to lead communities and organizations towards a better future. The goal is to build youth leadership and participation in social movements by providing them with a decentralized social-media platform.
