We fight to eradicate systems of oppression, to ensure that all youth and young adults are thriving through partnership and advocacy, equitable access to stable and safe housing, and individualized support within our community!
Who We Are
The Dane County Youth Action Board
is a diverse group of young people, ages 14-24 with lived expertise surrounding homelessness/housing instability.
We work with our community to improve systems that affect youth. We provide insight, through our lived experience,
on how to make a positive change within our communities!
We value Diversity, Youth and Young Adult Leadership from those impacted by homelessness,
Community connections & partnerships, Individual agency, and Transparency.
We fight to eradicate systems of oppression including - but not limited to -
adultism, racism, ableism, transphobia, homophobia, and classism.
We work to center equity and intersectionality throughout our systems.
We advocate for the rights of young people,
to ensure that youth homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring in our community.
Why this means so much to us:
