We are very excited to announce the beginning of the summer 2011 Youth Organizing Institute on Tuesday, July 19!
Nine dynamic students from five different Wake County high schools will be coming together to help to build a youth-led movement to create more just and equitable schools in our community, to challenge the ongoing efforts to re-segregate our schools, and work to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline and win an education system that serves the community.
The students will participate in a four week program that consists of organizing trainings, leadership development, historical education, and much more. We’ll be crafting strategy of how to continue to build the growing youth movement throughout Wake County high schools, being led by NC HEAT (Heroes Emerging Among Teens), ahead of the new school year. Please continue to check back here for more updates as the program kicks off, and please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions.
