Youth in Action


YIA Youth Seek Innovative Leader

YIA youth seek an innovative leader, highly organized and entrepreneurially minded, to work with a dedicated team of youth and adults as the new Executive Director. After 11 years at YIA, and 8 as YIA's Executive Director, Adeola Oredola is stepping down. She'll be at YIA until the new Executive Director is successfully transitioned this fall. To see Adeola's letter to the community, please click here. Meanwhile, YIA is planning our spring event, YIA at the Boombox 4/22 6pm at The Dean Hotel, and Adeola would love to see you there!

YIA leaders were published in Brown University's journal Voice in Urban Education created by our friends at the Annenberg Institute for School Reform.

Youth In Action is a partnership between youth, adults, and community where young people are at the forefront of creating positive social change.

What if students were the teachers?
