REGISTER NOW for Teen Convening 2016!
Each spring since 2012, the Youth Organizing Institute has hosted the Building Bridges Teen Convening, a retreat for youth organizers and activists throughout North Carolina. Through this convening, teen organizers and adult allies who organize to end the school-to-prison pipeline, fight racism, work for LGBTQ liberation, create food justice, and other issues, come together and build bridges in the intersections of the issues and work they focus on. High school students from across the state are able to talk about issues affecting them in their schools and communities, lead workshops and skillshares about issues and skills that are relevant to the work they engage in. The programming is developed and led entirely by a team of representatives from the youth organizations who will be in attendance. The role of adult allies is to support with logistics and transportation, as well as to share space with other adult allies and discuss their work with youth.

YOI believes in the liberation of young people and strongly feel that in order to build a strong movement, we need to build intentional relationships with organizations who share our vision of youth liberation. It is with great joy that we invite you to register for our fourth annual teen convening!!!
