YOUTH AND COLLEGE DIVISION HISTORY

During the NAACP 1935 National Convention, several young people challenged the organization to provide young people with an opportunity to address Civil Rights issues facing the nation's youth.




 The NAACP National Board of Directors passed a resolution formally creating the Youth and College Division in March 1936. 




At the historical first youth meeting held in Baltimore, Maryland, June 29 - July 4, 1936, 217 youth delegates held a national conference that addressed four major areas:  Equal Educational Opportunities, Equal Economic Opportunities, Civil Rights, and Physical Security Against Lynching.

The Youth and College Chapters were formed around the nation through various colleges and universities holding numerous student sit-ins, protests for job opportunities, to be served in restaurants and to stop the lynchings of African-Americans.




The NAACP Youth and College Division currently comprises over 2,000 units, representing young people across the United States and other countries.

YOUTH COUNCIL CALENDAR OF EVENTS

EARLY EDUCATION MATTERS & RECOMMENDATIONS

In order for students to become proficient in basic math skills, mastery of skills must be reinforced in grades 1st through 3rd to remedy/end the school-to-prison pipeline.


Resources for these grade levels are imperative - small class sizes, quality teachers and additional staff, provision of support targeted to the learning needs of those students who are retained.


There must be active involvement of local leaders, retired educators, NAACP Units, and parent participation for instructional support and input into school governance.


Expectations must be established for enhancement of student learning behaviors to include active communication from teachers to parents and the administration.


Teachers must be adept to modifying instructional materials and strategies in response to student learning styles and needs.  Incentives, reinforcement and rewards must be provided to enhance student learning, motivation, and to acknowledge achievements.  School environments must be safe, orderly and disciplined, not rigid.  Student intent should be carefully examined by school administration in determining use of Zero-Tolerance Policy.
