Community Action Youth Programs
Youth Programs inspires emerging leaders to be their very best. Our free youth programs focus on leadership development, community service, employment readiness, and diversity support.
COVID-19 Programming Update
Due to concerns around the COVID-19 virus and directives from the State of Massachusetts, Community Action Youth Programs has suspended in-person group programming. All individual services are being provided remotely, as our staff is working off-site at this time.
To reach us, send an email, or call (413) 774-7028 and we will get back to you soon.
We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this challenging time!
What have we been up to?
Over their February break, seven students from Amherst Regional High School got together to make a video project about social media for the Youth Leadership Initiative. In collaboration with Youth Programs, the SPIFFY coalition and a professional filmmaker, the youth produced a short film about the effects social media has on young people. Check it out!
During the COVID-19 pandemic, our staff members have been working shifts at local food pantries!
