Youth Mobilizing in the City of Jerusalem on a Cross Road: Changing and Teaching Ourselves
This research is based on Participatory action research with youth led organizing groups in the city of Jerusalem. A core group of youth leaders are part of the research team, and they are supported with their groups’ members for implementation. The research works on an issue recognized by all members of the core group to be the place for their intervention and community change. The intervention and making change process will include a continuous reflection process among young people to ensure the learning process, and the awareness about the previous and current practices, what works and what fails. Youth will be bringing their experiences from the various groups to polish, develop, and enhance their own model of community change. It will be built on their worldview and their capability to make it take place.
