GCYO SIG Purpose

 

The Grassroots Community and Youth Organizing SIG aims to advance research on community and youth organizing, particularly in low income communities and communities of color.

We will work to build a research community that engages with practitioners in organizing groups, educational institutions and policy-making circles.

We seek to foster research that examines the ways in which organizing efforts affect school improvement and educational equity, youth development, community/democratic revitalization and social justice.
