Examples of Youth for Social Change Projects

The CityKids Foundation
We believe if you bring young people together from different racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds and challenge them to develop their own solutions, they will respond with energy, imagination, commitment and action.

Wiretap
Wiretap is an independent news and culture web magazine that generates and amplifies daily content by young people from diverse backgrounds. We mentor and train young journalists, citizen reporters, bloggers and provide a daily platform for young activists, social entrepreneurs, and artists from across the country.
WireTap was founded as a youth-oriented project of AlterNet.org in 1998. Thanks to the past support of AlterNet's senior staff, we have now been able to grow into an independent, self-sustaining publication.
