EYEJ empowers and creates Changemakers. During these unprecedented times of great change, young people are not being taught how to navigate life or create reform based on their authentic ideas about social justice.
We teach young people how to be positive advocates for change, provide leadership skills, and empower them to be self-valued leaders and citizens of their communities capable of creating reform.
With youth about justice issues that impact their lives and an EYEJ Youth Council that fosters the confidence, knowledge, and skills needed to advocate for positive social change.
We aim to give young people the opportunities to connect with their communities.
We encourage students to think about whether and how they can positively impact society and the environment.
We show the importance of being able to communicate and implement their ideas for positive action.
Empowering Youth, Exploring Justice (EYEJ) drives social justice reform by empowering young people to advocate for change.
Young people from the EYEJ youth discussion series identify as self-valued leaders & potential changemakers
