What is the goal of the education sector of Gen Z: We Want To Live?
Our main goal is to arm people with the tools they need to create change in their own communities by providing them with context and information as well as a national and international network of like minded individuals.
Our programming focuses on grassroots youth organizing and preventing performative activism, especially in anti-racist work. Rather than just telling people what they're 'supposed' to do, we discuss key issues, historical context, and advocacy tools, ultimately encouraging personal development
Why do we teach personal development workshops?
Community organizers and allies may not always be 100% prepared when first getting into advocacy, but their determination and willingness to learn and work outweighs their experience. There is no telling what change these budding organizers and advocates can bring when supplied with the right materials and information.

The Generation of Change is a two-week workshop which aims to prepare participants from a variety of backgrounds for effective advocacy work. Through education and experience, students have the opportunity to study relevant topics, learn from leading professionals, and develop their own skills and initiatives to become better leaders of change in their own communities.
