RISE UP & ACT: YOUTH FOR CHANGE

Rise Up & Act: Youth for Change engages transitional age youth (ages 12-26) in community mobilization and organizing activities to advocate for healthier public policies around substance abuse, simultaneously increasing their own empowerment, activating home-grown leadership and bolstering their agency in the world. As a youth-driven project created by The Wall Las Memorias (TWLM), Rise Up & Act: Youth for Change is dedicated to activating community mobilization, engaging youth in activism and advocacy, raising awareness around substance use disorder prevention, and creating dialogue between youth and system leaders.

Rise Up & Act: Youth for Change welcomes all youth (ages 12-26) to participate in this virtual interactive advocacy campaign! Participants should sign up for one of the two age groups-- Gen-Z Advocates (ages 12-18) or Gen-Z Mentors (ages 18-26) -- to participate in monthly peer-led meetings, virtual trainings, yearly summits, and our big Rise Up & Act: Youth for Change conference!
