COVID-19 Response

Young people and communities throughout the world have been impacted by COVID-19. Exacerbating existing disparities, the virus has touched almost every aspect of their lives, from health to education, from housing and food stability to mental health and social-emotional development.

During 2020-2021, during the height of the pandemic, yli youth continued to show up and show out for their communities, creating mutual aid, storytelling and policy campaigns to address the needs of those most impacted.
