Join us in our mission to catalyze youth-led social change.
Rooted in the long legacy of liberatory education, Chicago Freedom School (CFS) provides training and education for young people and adult allies to create a just world.
YTLC is a new program of Chicago Freedom School that will develop 12 young leaders into trauma-informed healing justice trainers for teachers, cultural workers and adult youth workers. This work will support youth of color in building agency and power to develop collective strategies and alternatives to oppressive structures and ideologies through workshops, teach-ins, research and personal knowledge.
This three part intergenerational training series enables participants to sharpen their community organizing and facilitation skills. Workshops include: Fundamentals of Community Organizing, Strategy and Campaign Development, and Popular Education Facilitation.
