Are you an American teen and at least 13 years old? Are you interested in:

  • learning how to plan a protest, rally, town hall, or any kind of large-scale activist event
  • getting involved with lobbying and policy advocacy OR
  • just generally learning about what it takes to become an activist without committing to something just yet?

Then join the Youth Activism Project!!
