We believe that:

  • Young people around the world are an untapped force for tangible social and political change. If you’re a young person, you should never doubt the influence of your own agency, voice, influence, and power.
  • History has always shown that young people have been the real leaders of social movements. Young people are not just the leaders of today — young people are the leaders of today AND tomorrow. 
  • Activism should challenge those in power and change the status quo, not provide band-aid solutions.
  • Activism must always be inclusive, intersectional, and promote the rights and dignity of all people. Activism should not perpetuate racism, xenophobia, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, ableism, or any other other systems of oppression in any way.
  • Activists must remain curious, informed, and always willing to improve and change their assumptions through dialogue and diversity. Always question whose voices are being systemically silenced and how we can change our culture to be more welcoming.
