The Urban Youth Collaborative brings New York City youth together to fight for change through local and citywide organizing strategies. We strive for social and economic justice throughout our communities — overcoming obstacles to make sure youth voices are heard and youth empowerment is emphasized. We, as a coalition, are committed to building a strong youth voice that can ensure our high schools prepare students to go to college, earn a living wage, and work for justice in society.
