SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference Volume 30 - The Young People's Project: "Come Let Us Build a New World"
FEATURED SPEAKERS Omo Moses (Young People's Project) Albert Sykes (Young People's Project) Various Young People's Project Activists
In 1988 Bob Moses founded the Algebra Project, a legacy of SNCC. The mission of the Legacy project is to spread math literacy and encourage teenagers to organize and make demands on their school system. In turn, an outgrowth of the Algebra Project is the Young People's Project (YPP) where young people organize their peers. In this session YPP members explain and demonstrate how their work is structured around simple tools for building relationships. Young "math literacy workers" and organizers divide the meeting attendees into small groups or "Neighbors Circles." They are encouraged to share their experiences and discover each otherís areas of interest.
