Movement Matters is pleased to announce our latest report, Building Youth Voice for Youth Power in the DMV: Lessons from the Field.
Building Youth Voice for Youth Power in the DMV: Lessons from the Field informs the growth of youth voice and youth power work in the region and also has lessons for the field that extend beyond the DMV. The report offers a framework for youth work that helps clarify the distinction between approaches while also identifying how these approaches can be networked together as an ecosystem to support the development of youth power.
We thank the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation for their ongoing efforts to change the way philanthropy is supporting work on the ground and for commissioning this report.
We sincerely appreciate the time, trust, and recommendations provided by the groups we interviewed as well as their commitment to youth work in the DMV.
With the support of the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation, Movement Matters will also be leading action-oriented conversations (Autumn 2019) around strengthening and deepening youth voice, youth work, and youth power in northern Virginia and regionally.
