Youth Allies



Earth Care’s Youth Allies for Sustainability is a program for young people in northern New Mexico who care about people and the planet and want to make a difference by stepping up and creating the change they want to see in the world.

Join a diverse group of your peers after-school and on weekends to explore environmental and social issues and become active and engaged leader in your community. Youth Allies offers opportunities to organize a community action project, educate your peers, work on grassroots campaigns, and serve on City commissions, task forces, and advisory boards.

Exercise leadership skill, build a knowledge-base in the areas that are relevant to your life. Make a positive difference by feeling empowered to create a better future for you, your family, and your community.
