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.

  • Back to School, Deeper in Debt
    With millions of students going back to school and the student loan payment pause ending in a few months, it is vital that we keep up the pressure on the Biden Administration and our legislators to cancel student debt. Young people deserve a fair shot at an affordable and accessible education. Help young people live out their dreams, not live in debt. 
  • How People Powered Movements Win
    Young people’s impact on the 2020 election was resounding, creating a fervor for progressive change that has continued in 2021. Monthly donors, or sustainers, are vital to powering this work and building the infrastructure needed to transform our communities and our country.
