Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR)

Pilot project in conjunction with Shelby County’s Youth and Education Nonprofit Sub Committee and the Opportunity Accelerator (OA) to better understand Opportunity Youth (OY)–young people ages 16-24 persistently disconnected to employment and/or education opportunities–including the strengths they have, the challenges they face, and the opportunities to intervene in those challenges. This research will be unique, in that young people in Shelby County (over the age of 18) will be trained and compensated to develop and execute the research.
