YLI's mission includes building communities where young people and their adult allies come together to create positive social change. Local youth have learned how to talk to community leaders about their
concerns and their needs. Youth have learned about educational and health inequities, substance abuse, predatory financial practices, public housing, youth voice, and many other issues.
