The New Hampshire Youth Success Project is a board of young people who have experienced unaccompanied homelessness while under the age of 25. We believe that young people are the experts in the issues that affect us most directly and that we have a right to be included in decision making that affects our lives-- and that our systems are better and stronger when we are. The Youth Success Project works to connect young adults to spaces where they can make positive change and provides them with support and tools to have meaningful and authentic involvement. The NH Youth Success Project is a Youth Action Board, Youth Action Boards exist across the country and do similar work within their communities.
The vision of the Youth Success Project is that every young person’s needs are met in the state of New Hampshire and that young people are entrusted to make decisions about their own lives.
The mission of the Youth Success Project is to create an equitable platform for youth voice in decision making spaces through collective power and advocacy work led by those who have been most marginalized.
