Friends in Action prepares and mobilizes today's youth to serve with compassion and to lead with courage.
Light the Spark. Take the Lead.
Our vision is to provide resources and meaningful opportunities for all youth to develop and practice their unique leadership style.
WE BELIEVE that local communities become stronger as their youngest citizens experience the value of serving others with compassion.
WE BELIEVE that young people who find success in leading for a cause find inner courage and are more likely to desire future leadership opportunities.
WE BELIEVE that all youth, regardless of circumstance should be given the opportunity to discover their unique leadership style and capacity.
WE BELIEVE that leadership is not a spectator sport, but an endeavor characterized by action.
WE BELIEVE that gathering youth in safe and constructive environments to practice leadership breaks down social barriers, widens their world-view and removes the obstacle of complacency.
