Youth in Action!

Youth in Action (YA!) club currently exists in 6 high school campuses across Long Beach, South East Los Angeles, and East Los Angeles. The first club started in Bell Gardens High School in 2012, but East Yard had started building youth power and leadership since 2003. 

YA! serves as a space for youth to become engaged in local environmental health and justice issues. Members learn about local efforts to create a healthier community while developing leadership skills, public speaking skills and facilitation skills.
