Top 3 reasons to Join YUGA:

1. We fight the status quo.

YUGA members run at least two campaigns a year, always focused on important international issues. YUGA campaigns are designed to inform and inspire, and they come with comprehensive toolkits that support our network as we create change together. For examples of our members’ awesome activism, check out our blog!

2. We make global connections.

Every summer, YUGA members from across the country and around the world come together for our YUGA Leadership Summit. The Summit is full of workshops and activities that enable young people to learn, lead, and empower themselves and their peers. Check out our sample schedule to learn more about the types of workshops and activities that we offer!

3. We have an impact.

By raising awareness of global issues, YUGA members create change in their local communities. But they also make a difference around the world, supporting Plan’s development projects by raising money for students, schools, and so much more.
