"The Freechild Project connects young people to create social change, particularly those who have historically been denied the right to participation." The website includes an impressive and inspiring database collection of youth-led activities occurring all over the world. The Freechild Project offers training, tools and technical assistance.

Studies show that civic participation and community engagement are factors that help deter violence in community settings but also in intimate partner relationships. The more young people feel connected, the more accountable they are to the safety and wellness of the community, their school and their family. This website is a wealth of information that prevention educators can consult for ideas to "activate" the young people they are working with and support their connection to social, political, economic and environmental issues. Many of the resources and tools are free.

 

Visit the website to see resources, tools and publications that have to do with promoting and supporting youth-driven social activism on a variety of topics. For inspiration click here to see the wide range of social justice and anti-oppression issues that youth around the world are working on from school reform and racism and the environment to public health, non violence and sex education.
