  • "…there are a series of challenges facing the growth and development of youth civic engagement work. These include, among others, the current economic crisis, a legacy of undercapitalization, and a lack of understanding of how youth organizing and other youth civic engagement activities add up to measurable, social change. In the coming years, RBF staff will focus on supporting the capacity-building needs of intermediary organizations, and will partner with these intermediary organizations to meet key needs in the field, including the development of an infrastructure for alumni engagement, and of targeted leadership development opportunities in specific regions and communities, including the South, Native American communities, young women, and LGBT youth."
