Looking for the newest members of our YIA family! We accept 60 applications every year. This application grants you access to our Core Programming, but if you stay with us beyond a year there are paid opportunities. All of our participants have access to community service opportunities and elective school credit for participation.

Applications open every April.

If accepted, a parent/guardian will be expected to attend a parent info session and you will be expected to attend our mandatory camping trip orientation.

“YIA provides a safe place for high-school aged youth to grow and develop into community leaders giving back and making an impact in Providence, the state of Rhode Island and beyond.”
