About this grant

The Institute for Democracy, Education, and Access at the University of California – Los Angeles was launched in 2000 with the goal of using the university’s research capacity and commitment to support community-based organizations working to address critical problems in public education. The purpose of this project is to examine the educational, labor market, and civic trajectories of young adults, ages 18-26, who participated in youth organizing campaigns in California during the last decade. It will compare the survey and interview responses of these young people to the responses of a random sample of more than 2,000 Californians in the same age group.
