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.

Hot Updates

  • How the Alliance Network is getting #VoteReady
    Alliance Network organizations have been hard at work getting young people #VoteReady this Civic Holiday season. Here is how our network is getting young people registered, educated, and ready to vote this year.
  • Latinx Organizers Powering the Alliance Network
    This month, we have celebrated the Latinx youth who power our work from organizers in our network organizations to our very own Executive Director, Sarah Audelo. They all show us that when we bring our full selves to our organizing work, including our culture and heritage, we build a better world for us all.
  • If You Want to Hire an Executive Director of Color, Don’t Set Us Up to Fail
    Any progressive nonprofit serious about dismantling our nation’s inequitable systems should of course consider hiring an executive director of color. But if the organization doesn’t put the pieces in place for that leader to succeed, it will merely perpetuate the inequities it is seeking to overcome.
