The core of the YAPA program is the study groups, where passionate subject experts on local issues mentor high school students to study specific, relevant issues.
Meets every three weeks for team and skill-building. Cohort meeting programs are co-designed and led by student officers.
Youth in Action Conference
The YIA conference has three primary objectives: First, to celebrate the accomplishments of students and mentors, Second, to promote youth civic engagement, and Third, to serve as an information exchange between selected, relevant non-profit organizations and students.
Our 2020 program consists of a 10-week Advocacy Group focused on providing students with a small group to study and advocate for a chosen topic with mentors who are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the topic. At the end of 10-weeks, each study group will show their efforts as a white paper, an advocacy campaign, or bill proposals or other proper format.
