The construction of a youth-driven
education model to prevent and combat racism was one of the principal
goals of the Youth Forums Against Racism (YFAR) project. At each
of the four regional forums, participants recommended what they
would like to see in a youth-focused anti-racism education model.
Then a team of eight youth, representing each of the regional forums,
had the difficult task (at the national forum) of combining their
peers' recommendations into one idea. They chose and developed,
with the help and input of their regional colleagues, "The KIT:
a manual by youth to combat racism through education".
"The KIT" is a bilingual manual containing 61 pages of information,
history, resources, and tools for anti-racism education. The manual
has been created by youth for youth, but is also useful for educators,
parents, community leaders, anti-racism activists, ethnocultural
groups, and non-governmental organizations.
