Guide to Social Change Led By and With Young People

There is a movement that has constantly grown in stature, depth, and breadth for the last 100 years. It is subtle, yet overt; calm, yet boisterous. Alternatively called the Youth Movement, the youth organizing movement, or the Youth Voice Movement, it is been the focus of The Freechild Project since 2001. As the School Library Journal wrote in 2005, our website is "...by far the largest repository of projects, ideas, and organizational links, [Freechild] provides more than adequate information to help students brainstorm ideas in order to start their own initiatives."

 

In 2006, Adam Fletcher, founder of Freechild, worked with youth activist Joe Vavrus to write a concise summary of every action and issue addressed by The Freechild Project website. This Guide includes those summaries, along with Fletcher's popular "Cycle of Youth Engagement," and a site map that explores the extent of Freechild's resources. Today the Guide to Social Change Led By and With Young People has been used by thousands of youth and adults worldwide to learn more about what is happening and what is being addressed by young people around the globe.

 

By delineating dozens of examples of issues and actions addressed through this social change, Fletcher and Vavrus provide an essential summary of youth activism today. This guide also serves as an easy-to-use guide to the Freechild website.
