The YOI (Youth Organizing Institute) is a popular education leadership development program centered on empowering the lives and experiences of young people.

The Youth Organizing Institute serves as a source of adult allyship and logistical support for NC HEAT. Visit their website at empoweryouthnc.org.

Participants of the Institute have completed a multitude of trainings, including:

  • know your rights in school
  • social movement history
  • power analysis and anti-oppression
  • building an organizing campaign

Their workshops include interdisciplinary visioning practices, discussions, presentations, hands-on and experiential learning as well as mentorship from movement elders.

They cultivate peer to peer education, as participants step into leadership roles as organizers and facilitators in their own communities!
