GRCB’s Youth Activism Project is a group of girls and youth with marginalized gender identities, in grades 8-12, building a supportive community, expanding their research, activism, and leadership skills, and working together to change the status quo! YAP youth work together to identify an issue that is important to them, research the issue, share their findings, and take action to make change through collaborative activism and creative expression!
This semester, YAP youth have been conducting research on the impact of school policing and curated a workshop series to present to the community. We hope you will join us!
