Youth Voices Action

Youth Voices Action

Youth Inspired. Youth Led.

At Youth Voices Action (formally TYDT), we're not just about new ideas in youth development, but about making those ideas count. Switching from TYDT to YVA was more than a name change. It was a deep dive into reimagining how we connect with young people, creating a secure environment for them to share their thoughts, concerns, and collaborate with peers from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. This shift is our way of ensuring that youth engagement isn't just a phrase but a meaningful, active process. Central to this journey is our youth advisory panel; they're not just part of the process – they drive it. We're here to back them up, empowering them to be the change-makers of tomorrow.
