Youth Advocacy on the Ground

Youth Advocacy on the Ground

(p.156) 9 Youth Advocacy on the Ground
Between Movement and Establishment
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the local level to underscore the distinctive niche that advocates for youth occupy there. It reviews the successes of the Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth, the San Francisco Organizing Project, and the Oakland Community Organizations to emphasize how these organizations have effectively countered obstacles with rhetoric and strategies tailored to advance the concrete needs of local youth. Although the contextualized analysis necessarily highlights how these organizations managed the specific challenges they faced as politically, historically, and organizationally situated actors, their strategies have broader lessons by illuminating how advocates must align their reform goals and tactics with local norms and conditions.
