  •  
    BYOP began more than ten years ago and was originally known as the Roxbury Church Collaborative. At a time when youth violence was claiming many victims in Boston neighborhoods, a group of pastors wanted to create a space for youth to take positive ownership of their communities. Liz Steinhauser, the group's first organizer, brought together many neighborhood church youth groups to work toward this purpose. The new community won their first victory by re-opening the Melnea Cass Skating Rink! Energized by this victory, the Roxbury Church Collaborative began the move toward more broad issues and successfully extended the time for the Student T-Pass from 6pm to 8pm (in 2009, BYOP succeeded again in a win for our Youth Way on the MBTA campaign, further extending the Student Pass from 8pm to 11pm.)

News Know How - 0 views

  •  
    Critical thinking about news media.

    The American Library Association (ALA) unveils a new campaign to engage librarians, journalists, news ethicists and students across the country in a news literacy education project. The campaign, "News Know-how," is supported by the Open Society Foundations.

    The two-year project seeks to create partnerships and collaborations for a nonpartisan, critical analysis of news and information. In addition high school students, with public libraries as their "newsroom," will learn how to distinguish facts from opinions; how to check the source and validity of news and information and how to identify propaganda and misinformation.

Nonprofits Talking Taxes - 0 views

  •  
    Nonprofits taking about the common good.f you can talk and listen to another person, you're well qualified to lead this workshop. That's what common good conversations are all about. Since the common good is about creating a world that is beneficial for all living things, we all need to be part of the conversation. "Does Measure X on our state's ballot contribute to the common good?" "How can we advocate for the people our nonprofit serves?" The workshop will help you discuss these questions (and others) in a way that fosters collaboration (not competition, arguments, or discord). Check out the PowerPoints and Trainer Guide for more on leading collaborative conversatio

Participatory Budgeting Project - 0 views

  •  
    Participatory budgeting (PB) is a different way to manage public money, and to engage people in government.

Family Dinner Project - 0 views

  •  
    The Family Dinner Project is a start-up grassroots movement of food, fun and conversation about things that matter.
    Over the past 15 years, research has shown what parents have known for a long time: Sharing a fun family meal is good for the spirit, brain and health of all family members. Recent studies link regular family meals with the kinds of behaviors that parents want for their children: higher grade-point averages, resilience and self-esteem. Additionally, family meals are linked to lower rates of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, eating disorders and depression. We also believe in the power of family dinners to nourish ethical thinking.

    Now, through this movement, families will come together to share their experiences and insights to help each other realize the benefits of family dinners. Together, they'll figure out the resources needed - like tips for setting dinnertime goals, overcoming obstacles such as conflicting schedules and engaging everyone in meaningful conversation - to improve the frequency and quality of their mealtime interaction.
