Growing leaders for the future of the movement
Since TIRRC’s inception youth have played key roles within the organization – as participants in local organizing committees, leaders of campaigns, and even members of the organization’s board of directors.
In summer 2009 TIRRC initiated the first Youth Justice Schools. The Justice Schools provide basic civics education and anchor new youth leaders in the principles of organizing for social justice.
TIRRC’s organizers in Middle and East Tennessee are already working with a team of youth leaders to coordinate Justice Schools for youth, which have finished their first sessions in both Knoxville and Nashville to do the second session of Justice Schools.
