Collective Action for Positive Youth Development

Cultivating Anti-Racist, Healing Centered and Transformative Solutions

Liberation is a praxis: applying theory, taking action, and reflecting...
in order to transform the world. -Paulo Freire

Who We Are

Praxis works with youth and community initiatives committed to high quality, transformative programming. Our hands-on approach is inclusive of all stakeholders and is grounded in the application of anti-racist, healing-centered, research based and participatory engagement strategies. We provide support and services to help our partners integrate theory and practice in order to engage, empower, and embolden young people and communities to be agents in the creation of their individual and collective wellbeing. We work collaboratively with our partners to provide inclusive interactions and participatory practices that inform every step of the process.

Meet The Team

We are a versatile and multicultural team with years of experience and life lessons from working with the not for profit sector, government, academia, schools, and community based organizations. We are educators, racial healing practitioners, multi-disciplinary artists, coaches, counselors, activists, evaluators, researchers, and not for profit leaders.
