A series of papers published by Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society provides insight into youth movements for social change and the roles played by youth organizations in shaping young people’s worldviews, civic engagement, and social wellbeing. The papers were solicited by the Berkman Center as part of its Kinder & Braver World Project: Research Series, a MacArthur-supported collaboration with the Born This Way Foundation that aims to synthesize research and provide research-grounded insight into the variety of groups working on issues related to youth empowerment.
Digital Media & Learning
MacArthur is exploring how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. The goal is to make education more powerful for all students by creating more opportunities for more youth to engage in learning that is relevant to their lives and prepares them for success in school, the workplace, and their community.
