What is Youth MOJO?

Youth Movement of Justice Organizing (Youth MOJO) is a youth leadership development program at Chinese Progressive Association for high school students in San Francisco. We work on social issues affecting working class families such as healthcare, education, and workers’ rights by empowering young people to work towards positive change in our communities. Through Youth MOJO, you’ll develop and strengthen leadership, public speaking, communication, advocacy, and organizing skills while having fun and meeting new friends in a friendly and engaging environment. You will earn volunteer hours & community experience for your participation.

Hear from current MOJO'ers:

I like Youth MOJO because it’s completely different from school and I can be myself. It’s a group of youth that care about social justice issues that care and support each other. MOJO allows me to learn more about community issues through workshops and discussion. I also really love meeting cool people and learning more about myself. -Connie

At MOJO, I am given the opportunity to learn at my own pace while I have fun and make news friends. The skills and topics I learn in MOJO are relevant to my identity as a Chinese, low-income, first generation (to go to college) student. I like MOJO because I am given the opportunity to make a change in my community in a way that does not exist at home or school. -Winnie
