Youth Advocates for Change is a multifaceted nationwide youth driven organization focused on promoting growth and supporting youth ideas and projects. Our 501(c) nonprofit is adament on creating space to normalize the acceptance of youth voices and inspire local action inclusive of intersectional social justice issues. We achieve this goal by aligning student passions and talents with creating change. With impactful projects like commuity drop off drives, fundraising events and community organizing, our members learn the core values of what it means to take action and be an activist.
We strive to expose our members to networking and internship opportunities to best support their future educational dreams and careers. As a team, the creativity aspect of the organization is essential. We are known to be far from mainstream and choose to incorportate the term "artivism" into our work. Artivism is the intersection of art to actvism. We achieve this by using creative outlets such as photography, podcasting and fashion to urge change. At YA4C our mission is to support creative youth by being a stepping stone to connect them to the next oppurtunity in a positive direction to truly help and assist them with reaching their personal and career goals while making a positive impact on social change.
