we help teen activists build the skills, networks, and resources to lead change in their community
We do this three ways:
1. Empower young activists through online trainings and community-building.
Teens interested in our services can register an activism campaign they founded, work with us to create a campaign, or join an existing teen-led campaign. By joining our community, you'll get access to:
◙ online trainings to learn activism skills, such as recruiting for your campaign, public speaking, and lobbying
◙ support in building an activist community of teens around the country and adults who have your back no matter what
◙ publicity, opportunities to apply for funding, and other resources
2. Provide technical assistance and community building to adults interested in supporting teen-led activism.
The Youth Activism Project is committed to creating a culture where adults and teens are able to work together in mutual collaboration and respect in order to achieve positive change on social and political issues. We are building a community of Adult Allies, where adults are happy to take the back seat to teen leadership.
3. Provide keynotes, trainings & consulting services to youth-led and youth-serving organizations.
For organizations that are youth-led or adult-led (or multi-generational), we provide customized and interactive workshops, train-the-trainer models, inspiring speakers, plus consulting to increase the impact of youth-led advocacy campaigns and youth-adult partnerships.
