Schools in Action

YIA partners with Providence Public Schools to address issues of equity and access in the school system. With Schools in Action,  we bring the YIA experience to the classroom- a curriculum rooted in identity, youth voice, and social change.

Through this programming youth develop a sense of self-rooted wisdom, ethics and empathy; advocate for positive change; dismantle systems of oppression; and build leadership skills with a lens on social justice.
