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.
