This one year renewal grant will support Coleman Advocate’s youth-led intergenerational drive for equity, with particular focus on education in San Francisco, through Youth Making a Change (YMAC). Over the next year, Coleman Advocates will engage with hundreds of students through classroom and CBO workshops and work with a focused cohort of youth leaders to support and build their organizing capacity. Coleman Advocates will also continue to work in partnership with other youth-serving and youth-organizing groups in San Francisco and beyond to address school-to-prison pipeline issues and move forward new reforms to ensure full implementation of reforms victories.
