Redefy is an international by-youth, for-youth non-profit that seeks to empower schools and communities with the resources to become more inclusive and equitable. We accomplish this 4 ways: journalism, resource creation, chapters, and campaigns. Redefy's journalism empowers a diverse cohort of writers and editors to comment or report on current events, social justice issues, and problems they have witnessed or encountered as members of marginalized groups. Our social media team creates resources for young people looking to learn about the issues and get involved in creating change for our social medias and website. Redefy mobilizes our international web of school, community, statewide, or national chapters to create local movements for social equity. Finally, as a full team, we launch large-scale campaigns focused on solving singular social justice issues.

A large portion of Redefy's mission is carried out through the efforts of our international network of chapters and our hundreds of school/campus representatives. Building and maintaining this community, as well as aiding reps and chapters launching their own grassroots social initiatives, is imperative to our organization.

Application due July 6th, 2021.
