Young Adult Engagement

The NAACP is expanding the presence of youth consciousness in every aspect of the Association through significant attention to expanding engagement with a key age demographic (1979 and after). Young adult engagement will be key in policy research, development and advocacy on all levels. Greater support is being made to enhance the capacity of local units to recruit, engage, train and retain young adults. Innovative approaches are being taken on young adult membership and program engagement.
