Though there are plenty of opportunities for students to participate in service, there are very few service organizations that provide students with funding and resources to spearhead and organize their own service projects/programs.
What makes Youth Action unique and more specifically, what makes YA’s organization’s approach to serving our community unique is truly one and the same. Youth Action provides students with mentorship, funding, and other resources to serve their communities. Youth Action’s mission is centered on the belief that students not only see the problems around them, and if given the tools and resource to lead, they have the capacity to act and impact their communities. Members of Youth Action organize innovative youth-captivating service projects to excite their peers about leadership and service to their communities.
Youth Action develops students who reach their full leadership potential, value civic engagement, and will continue to serve their communities throughout their lives. Youth Action works to become a model for successful service endeavors in the nation. Youth Action intends to service thousands of young people and encourage them to become socially responsible leaders.
