Facilitating Youth-led Participatory Action Research

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The practice of youth-led participatory action research (YPAR) asserts that youth have a right to research the conditions that shape our lives. This workshop will be led by a group of youth who are doing YPAR to collect and share the stories of undocumented immigrant youth. We will explain our YPAR process step-by-step, from deciding on a research focus, to collaboratively collecting and analyzing data, to using this information to create social change. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of how to use YPAR in their own activist efforts.
