ENGAGING YOUTH TO CHANGE, BECOME AND EVOLVE

The next generation of civil rights leaders find a home and support at NAACP. These youth bring the vibrancy and unique perspective that continues our legacy of advocating for Black lives.


YOUTH MOVEMENT

In 1960, The NAACP proudly saluted the involvement of Its youth members in the sit-in demonstrations that began in Greensboro, North Carolina in an effort to desegregate lunch counters.

In 1961 The youth and college Division shifted it emphasis from sit-in to demonstrations to demands for jobs and equal opportunities for workers. In 1963 youth members from around the country responded to the call for a “Jobs and Freedom” March on Washington.
