YOUTH POWER! is a New York State network run for and by youth and young adults. We work to ensure young people have meaningful involvement on all levels of the services they receive. We ensure the availability of Peer Support through persistent advocacy, technical assistance and by offering training and education opportunities.

Our Priorities

The YOUTH POWER! Priority Agenda will guide our advocacy efforts through 2018. As a network, we will set and reach goals which will transform service systems so that young people get the support they need with the respect and dignity they deserve. Check out the Priority Agenda here!
