New Media, Service-Learning & Community-Based Youth Organizing Working Group

Principal Investigator:
Joseph Kahne

The working group on Service & Activism in the Digital Age brought together a group of scholars and practitioners from the fields of new media, service learning, and community-based youth organizing during the 2010-2011 academic year.

The group:

  1. examined how new media is currently being incorporated into programs that engage youth in service or community activism
  2. reviewed existing research literature on the effects of varying approaches to this incorporation of new media
  3. identifed common understandings and areas of needed future research on the role of new media in youth service and activism.
