FORM A TEAM
or JOIN ONE or act by yourself AS YOUTH and AS ADULT
Hey, Youth! (Adults, scroll down)
YL is a community. You need not pay, become member of an organization, show up for board meetings or training at 5.
It’s like with free online gaming communities like League Of Legends or Fortnite. You use online tools to self-organize activities, not on screen but in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, cities and regions with impact on lives and land FOR REAL.
You choose your quest, form your path, interact with who you like – we are here to help you #bemoreawesome also at night, on week-ends and holidays #fulltimeforfuture. Plus, there’s local YL Coaches and Allies for you. You will meet them as you walk.
You can act on your own, as many successful hero*ines do. But working as a team will boost your fun, reach, relations, scope of talent and impact. Like in sports, you pick your pace, amateur or pro athlete, casual or fulltime, it’s entirely up to you. Whether silent or loud, visible or acting in secret, all of us are part of the sport we love and we are all important part of one Tribe!
So, do what you love #bemoreawesome
For YOUTH teams, we differ 3 forms, mostly defined by pace and by space of operation.
Hence, although we show you mostly badass bold superhero*ines (like in the field of sport or music), don’t feel shy or obliged to do like them. Please be entirely true to yourself. We want you to feel good. The special thing about YL though is that we don’t stop at one-off $50 Xmas cookie sales or tell you we can’t do that or that’s too big. Like others do. Here, you can always go bigger, surprise us, be crazy and spectacular! And isn’t that magic?!
Whichever path and pace you choose, you have access to the full scope of YL Tribe resources, partners and support, by signing up free with our #BeMoreAwesome program for youth age 8 to 18
