Robin G. Jackson, M.A.
Robin G. Jackson is pursuing her PhD in Urban Education Studies, at Indiana-University-Purdue University-Indianapolis. Robin is also a Graduate Research Assistant at the Midwest & Plains Equity Assistance Center. Robin’s previous experience in youth-serving organizations rests heavily in after-school and summer programming, with youth of all ages in disinvested circumstances. It is because of this unique position Robin had been able to tap into her own similar history, and relate to the youth she served on a more informal level; forming relationships and recognizing the imperative of youth voice and autonomy. Organizations Robin has served with include Marion County Commission on Youth (MCCOY), Christel House International, the John H. Boner Community Center, Boys & Girls Clubs of Indiana, Girls Scouts, and a host of other youth-serving organizations. Robin’s research interests include decolonizing research methodologies and youth participatory action research.
