Youth voices too often go unheard. We believe it’s time to change that.
That is why we launched Project Re:Verb.
In order for lasting change to be created in communities that have been impacted by disasters, or that are grappling with poverty, violence, discrimination or grief, young people must be empowered to become agents of that change. By directly participating in community-building and long-term recovery processes, youth are uplifted–developing the tools they need to become leaders and to inspire meaningful change within their own lives.
Project Re:Verb is a connected youth development initiative which aims to help teens see the world through one another’s eyes, broadening their world view beyond their own neighborhoods. Through digital media, art projects and peer-to-peer learning, participating youth connect, create, define and re-imagine the unique stories of their lives and their communities, learning and teaching at the same time.
In 2016, Project Re: Verb was launched as a pilot program on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations in South Dakota, in Post-Katrina New Orleans, Louisiana, and in earthquake-impacted Jacmel, Haiti.
As funding allows, Project Re: Verb will be expanded to include more communities around the world.
