"Great cause. Definitely need more young people taking positive action right now. "
No matter what side you are on, this election spotlighted the unrest in our country. Our young people saw fighting and violence -- and they need a way to take positive action. We can support them to find their voice, take action and make a real impact on vital issues they see in their community. And Youth Service America helps them do it.
Through being involved with youth serving organizations for many years and having 4 children of my own, I have seen the power young people have to actually improve their communities, and I want to do whatever I can to help activate more of them.
Please take action and help me reach my goal of raising $3,000 for Youth Service America. This will activate 200 young people to be leaders TODAY.

Youth Service America activates young people to find their voice, take action, and make an impact on vital community issues through funding, training, and recognizing them. We also prove our youth-led projects with locations, impact metrics, and number of youth activated on our impact map.

|TechnoAcademy has educated more than 150,000 veterans and seniors on modern technology.||Katie's Krops has fed 1,000's of needy people with fresh produce through over 100 youth-led gardens in the country.||Shred Kids Cancer has raised over $325,000 for pediatric cancer research and help start 6 clinical trials.|
Not only are the youth we are activating attaining important life and career skills like critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication, but they are also building awareness and creating solutions to real problems in our communities like
violence prevention in Florida, cancer treatment in California, childhood hunger eradication in Texas, and anti-bullying education in Arizona.
Will you help us activate more young people to lead?
