“You Learn What Sparks You”

As the school year wound down last year, a few YLAVers decided to share why this experience mattered to them. We figured now is a great time to share those videos, as we are looking for our next great group of students for the 2016-17 school year! (Application available here.)

So, straight from their mouths. Here’s why being part of YLAV is awesome:

“You learn so much, about yourself and what you’re passionate about. … You learn what sparks you.” -Madison, YLAV 2015-16

“It’s really cool that there’s a group of teens talking about anti-violence and how to prevent violence. It’s an issue that surrounds teens… often times, teens are overlooked. I think it’s really important to include teens in the solution.” -Amber, YLAV 2015-16

“I’ve been able to meet a whole bunch of new friends that are super supportive in what I want to do. It has given direction to my passion for advocacy.” -Abby, YLAV 2015-16

“We need to draw attention to these issues. The best way to do that is getting involved in the community, which I think YLAV does a great job of.” -Henry, YLAV 2015-16
