Annually on November 17, student rights groups from around the world celebrate International Students’ Day to recognize the power of student communities. As young people we know that our various backgrounds and diverse experiences unite us for a stronger global future.

The day encourages students to connect across country borders and collaborate purposefully with fellow student leaders. To facilitate and aggregate these connections, Student Voice is excited to announce the launch of the new online community, Youth United for Action (YU4A).

Youth United for Action (YU4A) is a space for students to share opportunities and stories of triumphs and struggles. It’s where students become involved in activism, connect with fellow changemakers, and create a community of support for the issues young people are passionate about improving.

We are calling all young people to join us online and on the road as we work to unite student leaders and activists across the U.S. through Youth United for Action. Together we can create a network of thousands of students, united with the common goal of improving local communities and schools.
