Rhizome

School systems are an untapped source of civic power for young people. We organize to empower student-led communities, place students on paths to lifelong leadership, and shape a healthier future for our local communities and our country. Rhizome is a place for action and ideas, a home for emerging leaders to organize around what they care most about.

Rhizome provides nonpartisan resources, training, and community spaces for youth leaders to engage in civic education through peer-mentorship.

“People have to be made to understand that they cannot look for salvation anywhere but themselves” - Ella Baker
