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.

Social media is becoming more important every day as a method of spreading our mission, building community, sharing actionable steps and resources, and unifying members of our generation.To do so, our posts and resources must be well-researched and informative. Consequently, the Directors of Research will compile the necessary information for any post/resource.

Application due July 13th, 2021.
