In this interactive workshop, participants will examine a youth-led campaign to promote social justice. We’ll look at dynamic case studies of Youth Leadership Institute’s (YLI) youth leaders whose campaign and advocacy efforts led to the passing of model ordinances limiting payday lenders, strengthening of laws limiting tobacco and alcohol advertising in neighborhoods, and increased access to healthy food in low-income California communities. Participants will also explore YLI’s Positive Youth Development framework that illustrates practical strategies for partnering with youth in social justice efforts.
