Youth Act: Community Impact. Forum Focus. Volume 2, Issue 2, May 2004
Forum for Youth Investment
In July 2002, the Forum merged with Community IMPACT! USA, a national organization created to support a network of neighborhood-based affiliates dedicated to helping young people develop the skills, knowledge and connections needed to improve educational and economic opportunities in their neighborhoods. This issue of Forum Focus shares the story of the progress made toward helping one organization, CI! Nashville, live up to its name. In Research Update, we provide a summary of exciting new research on engaging young people in civic activism as a powerful tool for youth development and community change. In On the Ground, John Hilley, executive director of CI! Nashville, gives an account of how one teen made a difference in his community and how his efforts demonstrate the changes made in the organization during the last few years. And in Voices From the Fields, we interview two of the teens from CI! Nashville to get their take on the importance of youth action opportunities. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
