Apply to be a Youth Activist


  • If you or someone you know is ages 14-24, and wants to join our cohort of youth organizers, now is the time.

  • We're thrilled to announce that applications are now open to join our youth organizing programs for the 2023-2024 school year here!

Accepted applicants will join over 100 youth activists aged 14-24 in a year-long fellowship who receive training, support, and $600 per semester stipends to organize for sexual health, rights, and justice in their community! Youth organizers will also be flown to Washington, D.C. to receive in-depth training at our Youth Activist Institute in September, a life-changing experience where they will network with fellow youth activists and build essential organizing skills.

We now have nine core programs you can choose from. Plus, you will have the resources of Advocates for Youth behind your local activism all year long!

Our activists have used our training and resources to:

  • bring gender-neutral housing to their campus

  • pass state legislation expanding access to menstrual products

  • win access to medication abortion (abortion pills) on their college campus

  • urge their campuses to adopt better policies to combat sexual assault

  • advocate for better, inclusive sex education in their state and cities

  • educate their communities about LGBTQ Muslims

  • increase HIV testing and condom availability

  • and so much more!


And remember, applications are due May 1st - that's just a few weeks away (hello April!) I look forward to seeing the great applications this year.


In solidarity,
