2020 Cohort Program
Aug. 1, 10am-12pm PST
An intensive boot camp in summer to kick off the training.
Aug - Oct
The core of the YAPA program is the study groups, where passionate subject experts on local issues mentor high school students to study specific, relevant issues.
Meets every three weeks for team and skill-building. Cohort meeting programs are co-designed and led by student officers.
Youth in Action Conference
The YIA conference has three primary objectives: to celebrate the accomplishments of students and mentors,
to promote youth civic engagement, and to serve as an information and contact exchange between non-profit organizations and students.
Our 2020 program consists of a 10-week Advocacy Group focused on providing students with a small group to study and advocate for a chosen topic with mentors who are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the topic.
At the end of the program, study groups presented the culmination of their efforts, whether as a white paper, advocacy campaign, bill proposal or other format.
