YALP has given me many tools and ability to connect with other social justice advocates.

The tools I’ve learned I have taken back to young people I work with at Odyssey Youth Center. This has included planning successful events, running meetings that don’t suck and addressing racism with young people. All of these have increased my confidence and allowed me to practice new skills in a safe place, and that’s YALP.
