The Black Youth Project (BYP), based at the University of Chicago, is a nationally recognized research initiative focused on examining and documenting the political and civic engagement habits and attitudes of African American youth ages 15-30. BYP’s mission is to heighten the voices of black youth, in particular black males, in political and civic engagement spaces where they are often absent or marginalized.
