Program Description

The YA-YA Network is a youth-led organization that trains young leaders who are passionate about making change in community organizing around social justice through peer-led anti-oppression political education such as workshops about the school-to-prison-pipeline. Right now, our YA-YAs are working on a campaign to get restorative justice into NYC public schools to end suspensions and arrests that disproportionately impact youth of color. Through an impactful balance of political education and campaign work, young people foster organizing skills.
