A Worcester-based collective of young people in solidarity with their adult allies who creatively and strategically fight racism in all forms.

YEA is a volunteer-driven collective for youth ages 13-18 and their adult allies. No members are paid, rather we all, youth and adult commit to this work out of our personal thirst for racial justice and our dedication to a better tomorrow. All members go through a rigorous application and induction process that occurs in September of each year. YEA collaborates with many organizations within and outside of Worcester who share a similar commitment to racial justice and youth empowerment.
