For the next three months we’ll be highlighting the three major benefits of becoming a member of CYC (#3for3). By becoming a member, you’ll be opening the doors to a wide range of opportunities from access to jobs/internships to travel and registration support for cooperative events and of course the opportunity to network with #CoopYouth from all around the U.S. There is a clear lack of opportunities young people face today in developing their skills, knowledge and economic prospects within the cooperative economy and we’re ready to combat this phenomenon. Are you? #firstofmany #firsttimedriving #CYD #drivingformovement
Looking for something to do next Tuesday? Already know you have a break between 2-3:15pm EST? Want to empower other young cooperators in the movement? If you answered yes to any of these questions, register now for this ridiculously awesome webinar on Oct 25 hosted by the USDA. North American Students of Cooperation - NASCO, CoFED (Cooperative Food Empowerment Directive), and CYC's own staff member, Jesus, will be co-leading the webinar, #CoopYouth: Telling Our Stories.
Register early here: https://goo.gl/n4Nh1z
Tune in to hear the stories of youth movement building and organizing within and outside of the coop movement!

"Q: [To] change the world, what would you start with?
A: Community healing of trauma...
Even if we had cooperatives everywhere, that would not resolve or heal the trauma that we have collectively and individually experienced. As a result, we will just recreate the cycle of hurt within our cooperatives. Racism and sexism are forms of trauma, abuse by loved ones is trauma, not having sufficient income is trauma - it is absurd to think about building a movement on top of this trauma without finding healing."
From our Founding Director, Emily, in her interview with Cooperatives Europe for this document detailing efforts around the world to build #coopyouth infrastructure like USA Cooperative Youth Council.

"The National Black Workers Center Project drew inspiration from immigrant centers that cropped up in the 1990s to offer legal services and advocacy for the influx of Latin American and Asian immigrants. In a similar fashion, the Black Workers centers use a member-led structure to address the unique challenges facing African American workers -- namely racial prejudice, discriminatory hiring practices, and the disproportionately high incarceration rate. "You build the most power when people are actively participating in shaping their own lives," says Pitts." #workers #coop #cooperative #workingwhileblack
