FYA, SOUL and CYC collaborate to create a innovative new foster youth organizing curriculum - released Jan 2019
Posted on January 15, 2019
FYA, California Youth Connection (CYC), and SOUL School of Unity and Liberation are honored to provide this unique curriculum to our partners, allies, and all who believe in the collective power of young people. This is a curriculum about organizing led by young people impacted by the child welfare system. While it is a new curriculum, it draws deeply from the experiences of a long line of youth organizers and trainers in and outside child welfare. The curriculum’s activities and approach are grounded in popular education methods, reﬂecting the wisdom and expertise of a legacy of organizers who train and prepare both young people and adults to take action and leadership to improve their conditions, and those of their peers. SOUL prepared this curriculum in close collaboration with a team of staﬀ and young adult leaders at FYA and CYC. More than 50 young people have been part of the piloting activities in this curriculum, both in New York City and Los Angeles, and we are grateful for their participation and feedback.
