Youth Action Board

Youth Action Board of YWCA Olympia is a youth-led group of female and non binary identifying people who are working towards engaging the community to promote activism and intersectional feminism. In the past, we have conducted Participatory Action Research for youth in our community, collected signatures for De-Escalate Washington and campaigned for Home Fund in Olympia. We are committed to working with other organizations with similar values and missions. We strive to create a respectful and inclusive space to encourage youth leadership, while supporting all people affected by racism and patriarchal oppression.  Interested in learning more about the Youth Action Board?
