Being a part of Youth4Action has been an empowering and invaluable experience. This program has connected me with a network of like-minded youth across the region, increased my sustainability leadership capacity, and taught me to view my community through an action-oriented lens. The inspiration I received from other youth, the resources and knowledge I gained from Y4A workshops, the opportunities I have been given to practice leadership skills, and the unwavering support from Y4A facilitators, have equipped me to influence sustainability in my community.”
