Youth Action Members

YouthAction Members are high school students who have completed the YouthAction Community Leadership Course (YCLC) and want to use the skills they learned to continue to advocate with us.

Experienced YAMs can also become Peer Trainers.

“While advocating with CCC in Albany, I got to meet my State Senator. It was such a great experience to be able to talk to him. It was exciting to walk through the Capitol building where so many important decisions are made, and also inspiring to be around such powerful people.” –Kimberly Ortega, YouthAction Member (YAM) since 2011
