YUGA Leadership Summit

Every summer, YUGA members from across the country and around the world come together for our YUGA Leadership Summit.


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. Join us as we all come together at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island. You will be joined by youth from across the country as well as youth representatives from the developing countries where Plan works.

You get to build your understanding of issues with the guidance of our expert staff and our comprehensive curriculum. Take a look at our schedule to learn about the types of workshops that we offer. You'll return to your school and community ready to run YUGA campaigns, putting your new skills and knowledge into action!

The cost to attend the summit is $600, which includes room and board and all activities.

You must be between 14-18 years old and living in the U.S. in order to attend.
