It used to be that if you wanted to get information about young people changing the world, you’d have to know that they were doing that first. Then you’d have to look through a handful of self-serving nonprofit websites designed to hype particular types of youth-led social change.
You could search a certain activity, keyword, hashtag or Twitter user and wait for a geeky, social media scientist type to write the descriptions and run the activities for you. With The Freechild Project website that’s no longer the case.
Go to freechild.org and enter any word or phrase to get a comprehensive resource compilation, informational article, or activity breakdown to learn exactly what young people are doing right now to change the world, and what youth and adults can do to support them. Separated into actions and issues, the site also provides a massive resource center.
I began working on The Freechild Project a decade ago while I was on the streets doing the work of changing the world with children and youth. Today, I’m mentoring these efforts across the United States and around the world. If you’re curious are some videos about why I do what I do.
My favorite thing about freechild.org is that everyone who learns about it finds a different way to use it to get the information they need. So please, go check it out and then tell me here, in the comments, what useful info you found.
