One quarter of the population in the U.S. is under the age of 18.
That's who participate in school and community activities
who spend more than $150 billion a year
and who care about the world in which they live.
However, that's also
of the population who cannot vote
and who are supposed to be seen and not heard
making for a resounding of the future who have not been encouraged to exercise leadership today. Shouldn't young people have a voice in issues that directly concern them? Youth no longer have to be shut out. More adults recognize that the long tradition of making decisions for youth without youth has failed.Getting the powers-that-be to take seriously the ideas and solutions offered by the next generation is not as difficult as you might expect. This site aims to prove that MINORS can play a MAJOR ROLE. Our national clearinghouse also provides help and information to parents, mentors, teachers, principals, policy-makers and other adult allies who want to collaborate with youth to achieve positive community change.

Youth activism at the crossroads: where next for anti-capitalism? Canadian Dimension
January/February 2002
By Joel Harden
"I came here to protest the killing of turtles. IÕm going home determined to turn the world upside down."
These were the words of a young environmentalist who took part in the storied "Battle of Seattle." Her words are not unique: thousands upon thousands of youth across the globe are waking up to activism and taking their voices to the streets. As they challenge the worldÕs injustices, they are beginning to learn what will be necessary to end these injustices for good.
where next for anti-capitalism?
Contrary to popular fiction, youth revolts do not arise spontaneously. . . . There is nothing inherently radical about this time in our lives. Youth activism, of course, is nothing new. In the annals of recent history, from the heady days of 1968 to the present, young upstarts have figured prominently in struggles for a better world. Indeed, the exciting spirit of resistance in the past two years - particularly the anti-capitalist mood within the broader anti-globalization movement-has resonated loudest among the politically newborn. Here calls for reforms to trade deals have won less support than arguments surveying the ruins of capitalism itself. Amidst the tear gas and riot police in Seattle, Melbourne, Prague, Buenos Aires or Quebec City, there were few cries for "corporate responsibility." The most popular slogans are revolutionary claims: "This is what democracy looks like," "Our world is not for sale," "Human need not corporate greed," "A better world is possible."

Conclusion OneWorld US Special Report Youth Activism and Global Engagement: Part I This OneWorld US Special Report focuses on the intersection of activism among young people on college campuses and global issues. It represents excerpts from a longer report prepared for the Global Interdependence Initiative by Paul G. Aaron, with the purpose of identifying areas in which young activists and adults engaged in work on global issues might work together. The report will be published here in ten segments. Though anecdotal and fragmentary, evidence suggests an increasing interface between American youth activism and global engagement. Young people are playing important roles in a number of campaigns where international and domestic problems (and their solutions) overlap. Such campaigns include efforts to:
  • Reform and democratize institutions of global capital Ban landmines Stop sweatshops and press for labor rights Mobilize against draconian drug laws and the onslaught of the "prison-industrial complex" (and to link these domestic phenomena to worldwide patterns of social and racial exclusion)

Bikes Paint Messages As You Ride (Project BIKE)

An anonymous investment of $500 has allowed the distribution of a tool that turns any bicycle into a street-writing device. Bradley Pitts, a spokesperson for the group that created the tool, calls it "an efficient way to get a message out on the street... over and over and over again." C-Beyond A group that works to develop youth leaders who realize their individual and collective power to organize and create unity for the good of all people.

Youth Media Watch Projects Training Youth Organizations to Challenge Anti-Youth Coverage
INTERRUPT has been training youth organizations to carry out youth-conducted studies documenting unfair news coverage of youth and crime. In 1998, INTERRUPT released Juvenile Injustice, an INTERRUPT-designed and youth-conducted study of the San Francisco Chronicle's coverage of youth and crime. The senior Chronicle news editors met with the youth, published their op-ed detailing the youth's criticisms and agreed to support a proposal for a youth media council to regularly review news media coverage of youth. In 1999, INTERRUPT trained youth organizations from across the country on how to set up and run youth media watch projects. These trainings were held at two Arselyn Foundation sponsored two-day events in DC and Los Angeles and a Violence Prevention Coalition training in Los Angeles. In 2000, INTERRUPT partnered with YouthForce in the south Bronx to conduct a youth study of the New York Times. INTERRUPT published the study report

Conclusion OneWorld US Special Report Youth Activism and Global Engagement: Part VIII Nurturing Activism’s Base through Global Education Though youth activism is a free-for-all, with no formal doctrines or rigid hierarchies, many of the most dedicated campaigners do endorse an implicit rank order. "There needs to be a distinction between different types of campus activists," commented a 22-year old, full-time political organizer. "You can’t lump them together. Anti-sweat groups are in a completely different league than say, the Campus Women’s Center. One attracts students who believe in direct democracy, who want to restructure the entire system, and who are willing to use militant means. The other attracts students who believe that while society is basically OK, there are a few social problems that remain unresolved, but force is not necessary, and that to get results you have to cooperate with those in power." Another similarly committed organizer argues that "activism, by definition, excludes social-service groups who fail to tackle the root causes of injustice." While this kind of categorical thinking has not produced the belligerent sectarianism that cropped up in earlier movements for progressive change, it may in fact indicate a tendency which, left unchecked, could ghettoize youth activism and reduce the scope and reach of its appeal and impact. Richard Flacks, a reliably generous and insightful analyst of social movements, offers his own definition of an activist: "It’s someone who gets up in the morning prepared to do something to make the world a better place, whether that means writing an article or a letter to the editor or blockading an administration building."
