The Net Work

Guided by and in reciprocal relationship with the legacies of struggle and victories of trusted Elder and Younger Adult activists (Jegna), youth Guardians will engage in youth participatory research, social, and collective community action, and problem-solving that includes educating others.  This is how the GoH young people will achieve the Collaborative’s four African-centered power-building goals: a) civic reasoning and leadership skill, b) deepening their cultural heritage knowledge and Black consciousness, c) fostering intergenerational legacy learning relationships and, and d) inspiring community problem-solving through innovative social entrepreneurship. Youth activism will include producing research-based digital applications, virtual curriculum materials and media informed by African-centered heritage knowledge and focused on difficult to teach subjects like the impacts of slavery’s legacies on their communities.
