A Brief History:

Since 1997, YIA has supported urban teens to reach their personal leadership goals, enroll in higher education, and create positive change in their communities. Over the years, YIA’s more than youth members have changed the landscape of Providence by reaching thousands of their peers with health education and violence prevention programming, youth produced media, school improvement initiatives, multi-cultural events, and community renovation projects. Youth In Action is a partnership between youth, adults, and community where young people are at the forefront of creating positive social change.
