Everyday in communities around the world, youth activists, youth workers and educators are looking for powerful, purposeful activities that can change the world. At the same time, young people want to connect with adults in powerful relationships where they can actually change the world. The Guide to Cooperative Games for Social Change provides a resource for people who want more from youth activities.


The Guide features a powerful introduction to cooperative games, carefully detailing their relevance for activists and educators. It continues to provide clear, concise summaries of more than two dozen activities, including icebreakers, "funners," and closers. Each description details exactly how the activity can be facilitated, as well as the equipment, time, and space needed.

Since 2003 this document has been downloaded more than 10,000 times from The Freechild Project website. This revision features a clean, crisp layout and a fast download. Also, for the first time Freechild's parent organization offers print versions of this booklet for practitioners.

Youth activists, teachers, youth workers, counselors, youth leaders, and dozens of others have reported that the Guide to Cooperative Games for Social Change is exactly what they need.
