Chicago Desi Youth Rising (CDYR) trains, mobilizes and activates Chicago youth to combat racial, economic, and social inequity.
The CDYR Leadership cohort is a year-long cohort, starting with the summer leadership retreat for youth ages 15 – 21 who trace their heritage to South Asia and the diaspora, and who want to grow as leaders and changemakers. Participants learn about how systems of oppression shape our world; develop belonging, community, and solidarity across diverse and intersectional desi identities; and build the technical knowledge and skills needed to create social change, such as critical thinking, communication, leadership, advocacy, and community organizing skills.
After the retreat, the cohort will then reconvene at least twice during the 2021-2022 school year. They will have the opportunity to receive funding to put what they gained from the retreat into action and organize community projects of their choice.
CDYR welcomes adoptees, desis of mixed heritage, any immigration status, desis with disabilities, and all LGBTQIA+ youth.
**In an effort to be responsible and proactive in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's CDYR Summer Leadership Retreat will not follow our usual, overnight structure. Instead of an overnight retreat, we will be holding a “virtual retreat” on August 6-8. The retreat will begin the evening of August 6 with 3 hours of community-building activities. On August 7 and 8, we will have workshops from 9 AM to 4 PM, spaced out to give consideration for meals and breaks. Participants are asked to keep the following weekend (August 14 and 15) free, if possible, for an in-person action around India's and Pakistan's Independence Days.
This year’s format has created the opportunity for us to open up a limited number of spots to participants outside of Chicago. We are prioritizing applicants who live in the Chicagoland area and are 15 - 18 years old, but no one will be excluded from consideration.
The priority deadline for submitting an application is April 5, 2021, but applications will still be considered on a rolling basis after that date.

Deadline: June 11, 2021
We have an exciting PAID opportunity from the Office of Student Protections and Title IX. The Civil Rights Summer Fellowship was created in partnership with Born This Way Foundation to provide 20 high school students a paid opportunity to expand their leadership
capabilities, build community across the district, and shape Chicago Public School’s response to
bias-based harm.
This fellowship will focus on three initiatives:
  1. Fellows will work together with Born This Way Foundation to build out a #BeKind21 Calendar for
    their schools, share the message of the campaign, and participate in the 21 days of kindness. This
    calendar will focus on how students, families, staff, vendors, and community partners can promote
    inclusion and belonging in school buildings. The calendar and initiative will be shared across the
    district in preparation for the 2021-2022 academic year.
  2. Fellows will work together with the Office of Student Protections and Title IX to build out restorative
    practices in response to bias-based harm. This will include an introduction to restorative justice
    from the Office of Social and Emotional Learning, as well as the co-creation of talking circle or
    peace circle templates.
  3. Lastly, fellows will work to identify appropriate community responses in events of bias-based
    harm. This will include brainstorming sessions and imaginative thinking about what the future of
    CPS should look like.
By the end of the Civil Rights Summer Fellowship, fellows will have developed new knowledge and
skills around social justice, restorative practices, and policy creation. Most importantly, they will
serve as a student liaison to their school’s Student Protection School Representative (SPSR) for
continued partnership during the 2021-2022 academic school year.

Applications are due on Friday, June 11, 2021 at 3:00 PM.
