As one of Canada’s first youth-led charities, Youth Action Network (YAN) empowers youth and their allies to take an active role for social change through education, propeller, and resource development.
Originally founded 25 years ago by a group of passionate high school students, YAN is by youth, for youth, and remains dedicated to a youth-led experience. We empower our young members and their allies to change their communities through meaningful opportunities in a safe, inclusive space, and there are many ways to get involved.
