Rethink’s mission is to support young people in becoming thoughtful and capable leaders through the process of rethinking their experiences in their own school communities and taking action to make systemic improvements.
All Rethink programs and activities are designed to support Rethinkers in guiding them through our integrated model of organizing and leadership development.
Embedded in Rethink’s model of youth organizing and development is the commitment to organic community organizing based on the indigenous experiences of the young people in New Orleans and their connections to social and political institutions in their communities.
Rethink is committed to developing the capacity for young people to organize for collective action.
