About Us

Since 1997, Youth In Action (YIA) has supported the development of thousands of high school youth in some of Rhode Island’s most structurally disfranchised communities. We do this through a unique model that focuses on honoring and strengthening their own identities, defining pathways to their goals, practicing life and leadership skills, and innovating to lead community-change. Our aim is to demonstrate that systemic social change is possible, and that youth are and will be the agents of this change.
