Boston Area Youth Organizing Project

BYOP is an organization of youth, led by youth and supported by adults, who are united by a common purpose: to increase youth power and create positive social change. To do this, they have developed counter-cultural values, build relationships across differences, train and develop leaders, identify key issues of concern and take action for justice. BYOP’s goals are to improve the lives of young people, increase real political participation and build community.
