Youth In ActionYoung people informing their community about environmental problems, presenting about their experiences with dual
credit classes in high school, and organizing field trips to a local college – all of these are aspects of leadership modeled
by youths from neighborhoods that outsiders often claim don’t value education. This group of 20 youths launched a
campaign to inform the community and to present testimony to the city council and the county commissioners on the
issue of environmental justice.
