Resources

To ensure young people have the tools necessary to create progressive change across the country, YP4 provides its network with numerous resources. They range from newsletters and publications for young activists (such as toolkits and organizing guides) to our extensive YP4 Fellow Resource Library that includes external publications, articles, and guides related to social justice work.

We encourage you to look through the different tools we provide and to share them with your networks.

2011-2012 Fellowship Yearbook

In January, the 2011-2012 Fellows came to Washington, DC to harness the hard skills in organizing and to form their Blueprints for Social Justice. This Fellowship class submitted over 80 Blueprints for Social Justice. That’s 80 new campuses and communities that will reflect the change you want to see in the world, and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of that change. At the close of the Fellowship year, we share with our network the breadth of this shared work, which is documented in this year’s Fellowship Yearbook.
