Until January 20, our founding team is largely focused on our election and democracy emergencies. But we’re still launching Active Allies because we think we've found a unique way to advance the course-corrections our intersecting crises require. Recognition is growing that we’re living in a climate emergency, and that responding can also address systemic racism, inequality and injustice.

Our mission is to advance climate action and justice through youth employment and intergenerational collaboration.

Sponsors, Mentors, Advisors, and Project Managers all work together to defend, repair, and regenerate our communities and our world.


“Empowered youth are best positioned to lead in correcting our course. Active Allies can help us move toward our vision of a restored climate and a flourishing future for all.”
