Youth who participated in the 2014 Social Change Institute spoke out about the need for social change and what they learned in the training.

The Institute was organized by the Kansas City Program of the American Friends Service Committee and took place from June 9 through June 20. The Institute's goals were to empower youth, increase their knowledge and skills of nonviolent social change and deepen their commitments to work for a better community and world.

As a final project youth held the Reverse the Power Festival that took place in Mill Creek Park, KCMO on June 20 and included youth speaking out, spoken word poetry, songs, bands and information tables. See more videos from the Festival at this link.
