Youth in Action!

Youth in Action (YIA) is a project of the Institute for Public Strategies (IPS) that aims to empower youth in the South Bay and Border Communities. Youth in Action supports young people in transforming our communities to create positive and long-lasting social change. Young people’s voices should be heard and valued!
