Youth Social Change Institute – Changed Us All

We were proud of the work AFSC did with KC area youth in our Social Change Institute and inspired by the work of the fifteen youth who whole-heartedly participated. We set out to create an environment where all ideas were respected and differences were embraced. We sought to have the youth deepen their understanding of and confront the injustices of our community and the power structures that create so much suffering in the world.

AFSC partnership in Anthony gives incarcerated youth a second chance

The newspaper Las Cruces Sun reports on the farm project with the American Friends Service Committee and the Anthony Water & Sanitation District. "Anthony Youth Farm was their second chance. Perez says he never would have finished high school and Dominguez says she would have dropped out if they hadn't found their passion there."
