Organizations Advocating for Youth

(p.7) 1 Organizations Advocating for Youth
Between Movement and Establishment
Stanford University Press

Organizations advocating for youth share features of advocacy organizations generally, but they also face particular challenges as they work on behalf of youth. This chapter describes the opportunities and obstacles such organizations face as they strive to improve conditions for youth in urban areas. Advocacy organizations acting in the interests of youth play an especially vital role in America's urban centers. Because youth are nonvoters and must rely on others to speak on their behalf, advocacy organizations are critical representatives for them. This is the case when it comes to America's poorest youth, who have little representation or effective voice.
