Youth Volunteering

Here’s how we’re organized

A diagram of the components of the Youth Team Network, which are the National Youth Action Team (NYAT), Local Youth Teams, and Statewide Youth Teams
The National Youth Action Team is a space for youth from across the country to work together on effective and just climate action at the national level. We also have youth teams that work at the local and state level. The Youth Team Network brings these teams together in collaborative connection with the National Youth Action Team. The Network also provides support to newly forming youth teams.

NYAT is organized into four youth-led working teams: Actions, Outreach, Communications, and Membership/Inclusion. You can choose which team(s) to work with based on your interests.

Join your local CCL Chapter

If you are interested in working locally in a multi-age setting, you can find a Citizens’ Climate Lobby chapter in your area.  Here, people of all ages work together to engage with elected officials, community leaders, and the media to build political will for a livable climate.

Are you ready to solve climate change?
