We’re currently looking for young people from all walks of life to join our writing team – any part of the country, any political affiliation, any background. Duties include writing creative/opinion and news/advocacy pieces. We are also seeking young leaders with skills in web design, fundraising, and organization.

If interested, please send the following materials to, or link them in the form below:

  • basic contact information (name, age, state, preferred pronouns, email, optional – short bio)
  • resume
  • An answer to the question: What do you bring to YALA (skills, talents, experience, connections, etc)?
  • a supplement, like a creative media portfolio or writing sample (1-2 pages, or a few shorter pieces)

We look forward to working with you!
