Nothing about us
Is for us.
Youth In Action, a place where youth share their stories, practice leadership, and create change in their communities.
YIA envisions a world where young people are at the forefront of positive social change and believes that with their natural ability to innovate, capacity to lead, and desire for positive change, that world is possible.
Youth In Action is a different kind of classroom.
Using 6 different types of learning our programming produces results.
• project based learning
• incremental learning
• adventure learning
• cooperative learning
• service learning
We intervene at multiple levels of development: emotional, social, civic, and workforce. Our focus is on engaging youth to be full participants and leaders in their communities, serving as agents of social change. We use digital media arts, community health, and student centered techniques to engage our youth and build a context for passion and closing the achievement gap.
