The Black Youth Project (BYP) is committed to producing research about the ideas, attitudes, and experiences of young black people; providing a platform for their voices and perspectives; and mobilizing young people and their allies to make positive change and build the world within which they want to live. Our work is structured around three pillars:
KNOWLEDGE: We produce research about the ideas, attitudes, decision making, and lived experiences of black youth, especially as it relates to their political and civic engagement.
VOICE: Unlike any other organization, we amplify the perspectives of young black people daily without censorship or control. We have built a space on the Internet where black youth can speak for themselves about the issues that concern them.
ACTION: Informed with culturally specific knowledge, we work to mobilize black youth and their allies to make positive change and build the world within which they want to live.
Through all of our work, we strive for the empowerment of youth and young adults through our many programs and initiatives, which include the following:

Black Youth Project is housed at the University of Chicago, which means that
the University provides important in-kind assistance and limited financial
support. However, most of the funding to run BYP comes from sources outside the
University. We hope you will consider donating to support our work.
