The present study aims to investigate the use of digital resources in the context of volun-tary/activist organizations dealing with migration. Twenty semi-structured interviews were conducted with young members of 13 organizations of the area of Bologna. The results from thematic analysis show that digital tools can improve youth social justice engagement and strengthen the community as a whole. These resources also allow better access for migrants to opportunities that could foster their empowerment and social inclusion, thus promoting social justice. However, the potential of these tools isn’t fully exploited, partly because of the difficulties in using them with migrants in a situation of vulnerability. Within a social justice pro-motion framework, the results suggest the necessity of supporting the digital literacy of the whole community.
Keywords: participation, young people, organizations, migrants, digital devices, social justice
