Healthy Communities Phase II

FCYO's Healthy Communities initiative is a strategic capacity-building and communications initiative that supports low-income young people and young people of color organizing to address the root causes of childhood obesity.

Media & Technology Project

In 2015-2016, FCYO sponsored a capacity building project focused on helping youth organizing groups integrate social media and communications technology into their organizing models. This project supported seven youth organizing groups who were already doing excellent face-to-face organizing and who demonstrated an interest and a readiness to incorporate a greater level of media and technology into their work in order to engage a larger audience and build power.
