A series of papers published by Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society provides insight into youth movements for social change and the roles played by youth organizations in shaping young people’s worldviews, civic engagement, and social wellbeing. The papers were solicited by the Berkman Center as part of its Kinder & Braver World Project: Research Series, a MacArthur-supported collaboration with the Born This Way Foundation that aims to synthesize research and provide research-grounded insight into the variety of groups working on issues related to youth empowerment.

MacArthur's grantmaking aims to determine how digital media are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. Answers are critical to education and other social institutions that must meet the needs of this and future generations.
