A Report: Learning to Lead

Learning to LeadThe Learning to Lead: The Impact of Youth Organizing on the Educational and Civic Trajectories of Low-Income Youth report examines the ways that participation in youth organizing groups while in high school impacts the educational and civic trajectories of young adults. The study, conducted by UCLA Professor John Rogers and USC Professor Veronica Terriquez, compares the experiences of former members of youth organizing groups to those of a randomly selected sample of young adults who never participated in youth organizing while in high school. Rogers and Terriquez find that youth organizing alumni are far more likely than comparable peers across California to enroll in four-year colleges and universities and engage in various civic activities in early adulthood. These findings provide further evidence for the value of youth organizing: In addition to building power and garnering significant policy “wins,” youth organizing groups are powerful agents for youth development.
