Youth Action Now is about leadership and collaboration. We support grassroots action. Our goal is to help young people:

  • learn, experience, and expand their awareness
  • overcome obstacles and access resources
  • sharpen skills and build capacity
  • expand networks and build community
  • boost confidence and increase impact

Grassroots action depends on sharing experiences and building relationships. We bring together young people to:

  • share perspectives and experiences
  • explore the lessons they’ve learned
  • give each other tips and learn new tactics
  • develop plans of action
  • identify ways to support each other
  • build resilient, responsive leadership

We know that action needs resources. Youth Action Now provides start-up funding and micro-grants to youth-led initiatives. We use donations from our supporters to enable and increase youth success.
