We’re so grateful you’re here! Though it often feels like our work is fueled by magic, the truth is that we need folks like you.

By supporting YIA, your money is being invested in ensuring our young people can focus on their own development, build leadership skills, and grow into their power.

During the ’22-’23 program year, YIA employed 7 youth as part-time Co-Coordinators to lead their peers in programming and make critical decisions for our agency. Additionally, 53 youth received an average of $1,035 in stipends for their work as consultants and leaders within YIA and in their communities.

Make a monthly gift!

From now until December, if we reach 50 new monthly donors, YIA will receive a $5,000 matching grant!

By becoming a monthly donor, you will join our Bug-In Fam, a group named after YIA’s infamous Bug-In tradition. You’ll not only be an integral member of our YIA family, but you’ll also get an exclusive invitation from our youth to Bug-In every year and be a part of it all!

Boost your impact – make it monthly!
