The Alliance for Youth Action grows progressive people power across America by empowering local young people’s organizations to strengthen our democracy, fix our economy, and correct injustices through on-the-ground organizing.

Our Values in Action

These are the values that drive our work and the local organizing that puts these values into action.

The Alliance Network

The Alliance for Youth Action is a nationwide network of youth-led organizations. Each has its own local flavor, and each organization answers to its community’s young people. But all our groups work together to turn out our generation and turn up the political voice of young Americans.

  • How Local Organizations are Building a Debt-Free Future
    While we are trying to solve the $1.7 trillion student debt crisis at the federal level, it is critical that action be taken at the local level to protect students. That’s why youth-led organizations in the Alliance for Youth Action Network are fighting to protect student borrowers and ensure higher education at every level is accessible and affordable for all.
  • My Transition from the Alliance
    After four incredible years at the Alliance for Youth Action, I will transition out of the organization later this year. It has been an incredible honor and privilege to serve as the Alliance’s Executive Director and I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished.
  • Resistance & Resilience: 2020 Political Recap
    For almost a decade, the Alliance for Youth Action network has led groundbreaking youth electoral engagement across the country. Our network has been building for this moment and in 2020, we had our biggest year yet. Together, we made over 25 million contacts with young voters in 2020.
