The Youth Ubuntu Project (YUP) is a joint collaboration between ACEDONE and Center to Support Immigrant Organizing (CSIO) in which students from the Boston Public School system form a solidarity network to create cross-cultural understanding across immigrant communities.

Currently, the YUP students are working on a number of different projects. One of which is a Participatory Action Research (PAR) initiative that examines the English Learners Program in the Boston Public Schools. The students are conducting surveys and interviews of administrators, staff, teachers, parents and students of the EL to gather data on the inadequacies of the program.
