We empower youth to promote Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Together in our communities through service learning, leadership, and the arts!
Welcome to EDIT's YOUTH ACTIVATION CAMPAIGN!
Support us in reaching more youth in our community and help them ACTIVATE THEIR:
HERE'S A TRUE STORY:
Raquel was a participant in our GeneroCity program in which the kids chose to focus their project on people with special needs. As part of the project, a guest speaker came to talk about her experience of how hard it was in school when people didn't want to talk to her because her differences and her disability, and how sad that has made her. A few weeks later, Raquel came to GeneroCity and shared that she had invited a girl with special needs in her class to sit with her at lunch. She said, “No one else talked to her, so I didn't want to talk to her either. But what I learned from EDIT is that even if people are different, they are still people and they want friends, too.”
HERE'S A MEASUREMENT:
93% of participants said they better understood issues in their community after programming with EDIT, compared to only 46% before!
HERE'S AN EXAMPLE:
PhotoVoice participants put together all aspects of an awareness-building photo gallery: they choose the social justice issue focus, learn about the issue, conduct interviews, take the photos, edit the photos, frame the photos, hang the photos, and give a presentation about their experience to community members!
After EDIT programming, 93% of participants said they work well with people who are different
than them, compared to only 54% before EDIT.
