Join the Youth Activism Project!
The Youth Activism Project ( helps young activists drive local and global change. Since 2004, we have supported dozens of student-initiated campaigns addressing causes from promoting girls’ education globally to fighting sugary drinks to ending gun violence. We have coached teen advocates who influenced the passage of seven local and federal laws, raised $70,000 for their causes, and published two how-to action guides by youth, for youth.

By joining our program, you'll have access to:

- trainings to learn important advocacy skills, such as setting up meetings with decision-makers and public speaking
- a community of other youth activists
- 1-1 expert support from the Youth Activism Project staff
- resources, such as funding opportunities, online workshops, and connections to organizations and people that can help you with your campaign
