Who, What, When, Where—and Why?
Youth United for Global Action and Awareness (YUGA) is a nationwide network of ambitious young people who take action on world issues. From July 15 – 19, 2013 the YUGA network will be coming together at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. They will be joined by youth representatives from the developing countries where Plan works.
Together, these youth activists will build their understanding of issues with the guidance of our expert staff and our comprehensive curriculum. They will then return to their schools and communities to run YUGA campaigns, putting their new skills and knowledge into action!
