Key To Training Youth Activists 

The key to training youth activists is to continually train ourselves. Three of our YAL chapter’s officers: myself, Alice Bessette, and Royce Smith and one of our members, Khaliyl Bogarty adopted this mindset this past weekend as we traveled from Mobile, AL to Gainesville, FL for the Leadership Institute’s Youth Leadership School. It was a two day intensive training on how to implement a mass based youth effort into recruitment and campaign efforts. We were able to hear from various speakers and had the opportunity to earn books from Morton Blackwell’s “Read to Lead” list that will also further our education in the movement. We were able to act out how to handle crisis activities that involved things such as handling bad press and managing time effectively. Overall, the training will be an asset that our chapter hopes to implement as soon as possible!
