Council of Youth Research moves beyond school community
The Council of Youth Research will take their research to the streets. Diverging from previous years, the council -- made up of students from Crenshaw, Locke, Manual Arts, Roosevelt and Wilson high schools -- will use the research expertise it has gained in more than a decade of work to enact change in their communities.
Each high school group will partner with an organization for the full year. They will start with a research proposal outlining the problem paced by the community and why it is important to address it. The partnerships will be:
- Crenshaw High with Coalition for Educational Justice (CEJ)
- Locke with Association of Raza Educators
- Manual Arts with Brotherhood Crusade
- Roosevelt with InnerCity Struggle
- Wilson with Wilson People's Garden
The Council will also be sharing their knowledge with the general public by creating a video webinar about their research process. The resource could be used by other youth groups across the country interested in engaging in meaningful research in their communities.
