    Movement of Youth recently participated in the "Power of Youth in Service" Forum featuring one of America's most provocative public intellectuals, Dr. Cornel West. Cornel West is the Class of 1943 University Professor at Princeton University. He appears frequently on the Bill Maher Show, Colbert Report, CNN and C-Span as well as on his dear Brother, Tavis Smiley’s PBS TV Show.

    This event was hosted by one of our partners, the Cornel West Academy of Excellence. The event was the launch of the "IAMGREAT" project, an initiative where multiple youth serving organizations will partner on community service projects, including:

    • Cornel West Academy of Excellence
    • Movement of Youth
    • Clarence E. Lightner Y Achievers Program
    • Preparing America's Tomorrow Today
    • African American Leaders of Tomorrow
    • D.L. Forbes Youth Foundation
    • Our Youth Matters
