CSIO has been planning an immigrant youth leadership initiative since 2012, and after meeting with youth from dozens of partner groups and high schools, we are now launching the project with a youth summit on May 17.
On April 26, the GLN held a workshop for member organizers and leaders on using social media tools to develop stronger membership organizations, do outreach and organize campaigns more effectively. Some 20 graduates of previous Institutes participated in the training, led by CSIO volunteer Kevin Ferreira. The training reviewed social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram and others, helping participants think through when and for which audience each tool is appropriate.

CSIO Mission and Approach
The mission of the Center to Support Immigrant Organizing (CSIO) is to support and help develop the work of individuals, groups, organizations and communities dedicated to organizing immigrants around the issues that affect their lives. Our goal is to help immigrants in the forefront of community and workplace struggles to develop their power and leadership not only to succeed in their immediate context, but also to contribute to the broader effort to build a more just and democratic society.
