Caesar Chavez Public Charter School Tenth Grade Community Action Project

The Problem

The organization I am passionately dedicated to is Mobilize.org. Mobilize.org is an all-partisan network dedicated to educating, empowering, and energizing young people to increase our civic engagement and political participation. We operate through Mobilizer Teams who serve as our ground troops in the war against political apathy. These teams bring together local activists and leaders to help pave the highway to youth empowerment. One of the projects that I have worked on through my involvement with Mobilize.org is the Caesar Chavez 10th Grade Community Action Project. The Caesar Chavez 10th Grade Public Policy Project allows students the opportunity to make social change and influence public policy through an eight-week hands-on mentorship with alocal nonprofit organization. The program fosters creativity, leadership, and responsibility as students design, prepare and complete their own issue-influencing project. Through Mobilize.org and with the assistance of Do Something, students can continue to construct worthwhile community building projects similar to this years’ anti-gang, anti-violence interactive assembly that the students presented to their peers. Mobilize.org works hand-in-hand with the Caesar Chavez Public Policy High School to develop and complete this influential public-policy project that I am most passionately dedicated to continuing.
