Youth L.E.A.D., a nonprofit food justice organization, seeks to create a coalition of empowered youth activists that will change their schools and communities to foster more just, sustainable, and healthy behaviors.

Youth L.E.A.D. seeks to empower middle and high school students to make their schools and communities healthier, fair, and sustainable. Youth L.E.A.D. offers food demonstrations, food justice workshops, educational film screenings and guided discussions, and the "Activist Academy" where teens are empowered to become activists. We work with community gardens, schools, afterschool programs, teen drop-in centers, community-based organizations and leaders, and food activists.
