This chapter looks at three focal organizations to examine in greater detail the dynamics of effective advocacy organizations and the role they play in improving support systems for urban youth. It considers the Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth in San Francisco, the San Francisco Organizing Project, and the Oakland Community Organizations in Oakland. The chapter provides a brief social and administrative history of the people, processes, and events that led to each organization's “character structure,” understood as a distinctive stance and value system, particular staffing patterns and modes of work, and arrangements with other community actors.

Keywords:   advocacy organizations, urban youth, Organizing Project, Oakland Community Organizations, Coleman Advocates
