A Youth Action Forum

Young Mainers across the state continue to take action on the issues that matter to them the most – from mental health, to Black Lives Matter, to implementing restorative practices in schools, young people are leading the way.

MYAN and the Youth Planning Team want to continue supporting youth leadership and we didn’t want to wait until our annual Youth Leadership Conference in March. We’re providing a virtual space to meet, discuss, and tackle the topics that are most urgent to young people.

On November 14th, Join MYAN and the Youth Planning Team for a special virtual event designed for current and aspiring youth leaders all over Maine!

With an exciting Youth Leadership panel and inspiring break-out sessions representing 6 major topics – Mental Health, Restorative Practices in School, Black Lives Matter and Racism, Youth Leadership, Climate Change, and Body Positivity – young people will have the opportunity to discuss and explore perspectives and effective actions to take now.

While this event is designed primarily for young people, adult participants are welcome to attend the Youth Leadership panel discussion. However, the breakout topics will be reserved exclusively for young people.
