JOIN THE NAACP Youth Council


Youth Members Needed to Launch our West Metro NAACP Youth Council!


Joining the NAACP means so much more than membership within an organization: you are becoming a part of a community. Youth members are some of the most active supporters in our ongoing efforts to protect, defend, and fight for civil rights.


The NAACP’s Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) is a yearlong achievement program designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African-American high school students.

when youth rise, they transform

As the bloodline of the NAACP, we look to you to give the association the fire, fuel, and motivation to keep advancing through the trials of being a person of color in America.

Core objectives

NAACP youth units across the country engage in social justice activism, addressing issues at the local, state and national level, with a primary focus on education, economic development, health, juvenile justice and voter empowerment.


NAACPConnect is all about you -- young people excited to move this country forward. Tell us why you're getting involved with NAACPConnect -- your plans and your experiences will inspire others to get involved too. Sharing your story is the first step to connecting with others
