This summer, the Youth Organizing Institute is hosting its 9th Annual Summer Freedom Schools! It will be our fourth year with both a Raleigh and Durham Freedom School. Over the years, adults have been an essential part of the Schools, and we want to deepen and expand our Adult Mob Squad, which is the holding environment of our adult allies. This is an opportunity for you, as an ally, to continue to build a culture of support for young activists as leaders in the movement for social justice!
The dates are as follows:
- Raleigh: June 19 – 29th (Tuesday-Friday, 9am-4:30pm)
Durham: July 31th – Aug 10th (Tuesday-Friday, 9am-4:30pm)
We are so excited for this summer and WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! As a low-budget operation, we rely on our amazing adult mob squad to make the program possible. Each School will have about 10-25 youth participants between the ages of 13-18, and a staff team of around 5 young and older adults.
