Youth 4 Change


“Nothing about us without us!” 

When was the last time people with power asked youth about how to run our schools or what would be the best things for our city?  People are quick to call us the “future leaders of tomorrow,” but youth have good ideas and solutions to address our community’s challenges TODAY! 

The Youth 4 Change Alliance (Y4C) is here to make sure that we, as youth, make our voices heard and have our ideas taken seriously.  Get connected with Y4C to help build youth power in Providence!
