Additional Resources for At-Home Activism

COVID-19 Student Organizing Toolkit

The COVID-19 Student Organizing Toolkit, created BY young people, FOR young people. If you're interested in leading a campaign at your university regarding their response (or lack thereof) to the COVID-19 crisis. (i.e. worker protections, redistribution of funds to address student and community need, housing, health care access, technology access, pass/fail policies, etc), a staff member from Advocates for Youth will reach out to you within 7 business days to offer technical assistance and schedule a 1:1 (if desired).

COVID-19 Resources for Youth and Students

This is a working document, created by Advocates for Youth’s Youth Activist Network-- by young people and for young people -- where we invite the community to compile COVID-19 related resources (be it local, national, or digital) that support youth, students, and their families/communities.
