It is a community-university partnership between the UW Center for Community & Nonprofit Studies and the Lussier Community Education Center. The Youth Action Project is an intensive yearlong extracurricular program that recruits youth  primarily low-income youth of color  to engage in learning and action around pressing community issues.
