Launching in 2020, the Youth Power Lab will give youth organizers the opportunity to engage in deep evaluations of their organization and the broader field, identify key shifts that we need to make in order to take advantage of this political period, and begin designing shared experiments to test out new approaches to our organizing.

The Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organizing invites Funders to join us on June 4th for a funder briefing focused on how young people today from across the South are building on long traditions of youth and intergenerational organizing. From the civil rights movement to current efforts for safe communities and just schools, young people from across the South have always been at the forefront of advocating for just and equitable communities. Building on this proud tradition, a new generation of Southern young people is organizing to improve conditions in their communities. FCYO, in collaboration with Grantmakers for Southern Progress, The Highlander Research and Education Center, Project South, The Southeastern Council of Foundations, Southern Echo, Inc., Southern Vision Alliance and The United Way of Greater Atlanta invite you to Atlanta, GA to learn about how how funders, youth leaders and communities are working together to advance young people as drivers of change.
