Organizer

Youth, Media, and Educational Justice Collaborative, The Justice Initiative at Columbia University, and The Center for Institutional and Social Change.

Youth, Media, and Educational Justice is a joint initiative between Teachers College, Columbia University and the New York County/Manhattan Family Court. The goals of this collaboration are threefold:

  1. to create opportunities to nurture the wellbeing of youth in foster care and juvenile justice using collaborative mentoring and innovative educational approaches;
  2. to create multimedia narratives that promote greater awareness about issues affecting the lives of court-involved youth among educators, social workers, researchers, lawmakers, and communities;
  3. to study and support the transition of court-involved youth from young adults into productive citizenship and adulthood.

This multi-faceted project aims to provide a participatory approach to the study and support of the educational experiences of adolescents in foster care and juvenile justice in New York City. Through the support of a Teachers College Provost Investment Fund Grant, we have begun to build on our exploratory phase of this work undertaken during 2012-2013. As a project team, we are committed to bringing innovative pedagogic and research practices together to create meaningful, educationally-focused, mentoring experiences for the youth, most immediately in collaboration with graduate student mentors who will participate in a yearlong seminar titled “Youth, Media, and Educational Justice” that is being offered at Teachers College as a yearlong, participatory learning seminar.
