What We Support
Whether you are volunteering with a community group, working in a nonprofit, serving through a government agency, or creating a better home for your family, youth engagement can help you do what you do better. Freechild defines youth engagement like this:
Youth engagement is anything that any young person forms a sustainable connection with inside or around themselves.
Freechild believes the major barrier to youth engagement is adultism. Today, we help nonprofits, community groups, government agencies and others face adultism and build youth engagement. Freechild defines adultism like this:
Adultism is bias towards adults that results in discrimination against youth, and the addiction to adults our society is built on.
