CCL’s National Youth Action Team

Are you passionate about solving climate change? Are you looking to work with other youth across the country to advocate for effective and just climate legislation? Ever wonder how youth voices can make a difference? CCL’s National Youth Action Team (NYAT) supports youth under 18 to be active, engaged, and empowered in building political will for climate solutions. Join us!

Here’s what we do:

  • Lead action campaigns on climate legislation
  • Train youth to lobby their elected representatives
  • Give presentations on youth empowerment and climate action 
  • Create resources for youth to take climate action 

Our youth-led Working Teams meet on Zoom on the first Sunday of the month, and our virtual educational calls, highlighting timely topics, are on the third Wednesday of the month.
