Using the website, young activists are invited to pick a cause, sign up and send in pics of themselves and their friends in action. Support is offered via an online tool kit with clear guidelines: Know It, Plan It, and Do It.

The Blog connects young activists, celebrates their successes and earns them a chance to win scholarships. Not to mention street “cred.”

Young people who want to make the world a better place can choose from big campaigns that involve the whole community to smaller scale events and activities. Tools and resources available online offer guidance on how to make the most of their efforts and to have fun while working to effect change.

From Oppression Monopoly that can be played on family night to sponsoring a Zombie Blood Drive at school, the activities promote civic engagement. This type of community engagement is thought to be a strong pro-social protective factor which can prevent violence and the perpetuation of oppressive, discriminatory attitudes and behaviors by promoting a stronger sense of community and belonging.


Everything needed to get started can be found on the website. There are hundreds of campaign ideas to choose from. And, of course, there’s an app.
