engaging working-class youth

I am in a retreat with leaders who work with young people (ages 18-29) who have not attended college--basically, America's working-class and marginalized youth. Our colleagues provide a diverse range of opportunities, but all have civic or political engagement as one of their purposes. CIRCLE is the main organizer of this retreat, although we collaborated closely with our practitioner partners to design the agenda and facilitate the discussion. The conversation so far has been theoretically rich and challenging. I won't be able to reflect on it for some time, because my first task is simply to take it in. Most of our own research on this topic is collected here.
