The Nevada Young Activist Project (NYAP)
The Nevada Young Activist Project (NYAP) was developed as part of PLAN’s commitment to nurturing and supporting the lead- ership development of our state’s youth. NYAP’s vision is to aid the development of an educated and respected youth community that works towards the goals of social justice, willingly takes action and is able to achieve positive changes in our community in order to create accessible pathways to engage the democratic process and to reverse underrepresentation of their communities.
* Recruit young activists and educate them in public policy making and the political system as a whole
* Provide local youth with the necessary tools to become leaders in their community
* Develop and continue nurturing an active base that— with comprehensive access to opportunities and resources—actively, continuously and successfully takes direct action within the progressive movement
* Develop and nurture a base of able and non-able voters that share our values/goals/ vision and can effectively mobilize them during the electoral cycle
* Deepen young people's commitment to civic engagement through voter registration and "Get Out the Vote" activities
Check out the NYAP Brochure to see our list of trainings with descriptions.
