Ella Baker Institute’s mission is to provide community-responsive learning experiences where young people lead and communities gain the holistic supports they need to thrive as radical changemakers in their communities and beyond. Centering our VOICE framework to drive equity and impact, our programming and offerings center on Community Well-Being, Youth Leadership and Organizational Well-Being. Our flagship initiative is the Young People’s Leadership Cooperative where young people engage youth-led participatory action research (YPAR) to identify challenges in their community, investigate those challenges and take action to generate greater community well-being.
