How AYA Works For You

Let your reps know you’re watching

With our Contact Our Reps tool, we’ve made it easy for anyone to connect with their elected officials and demand action on issues important to them.

Stay up-to-date on issues you care about

Join thousands on our personalized, weekly newsletter. Get briefed on the stories you need to know about issues that matter most to you.

Save money on products and services

Because past generations left young people saddled with debt, we’ve begun to negotiate discounts for ridesharing, parking, furniture, and more.

Lobbyists fight for you in Washington

To create the future we want, we need a seat at the decision table. Our ultimate aim is to bring lobbyists on board to advocate for effective change.

Frequently Asked Questions

Looking for something else? Let’s talk.

Is AYA a lobbying group?

Not yet. However, AYA ultimately aims to hire lobbyists to push politicians on issues affecting young Americans at the state and national levels. In order to achieve this in a sustainable manner, we will initially focus on expanding our benefit offerings and growing our membership.

I’m younger than 18 / older than 35 / not an American citizen. Can I still join AYA?

AYA currently does not restrict membership, though we will eventually require members to verify their identification in order to access certain benefits such as discounts. Our priorities and policy work remain focused on the most pressing issues for Americans aged 18-35.

Is AYA a non-profit organization?

In short, no. We simply could not do what we want to do if we were a non-profit. Non-profits have strict limitations on what they can do as it relates to advocacy and lobbying. It doesn’t affect our vision or mission, it just gives us the tools to move faster. We will still be transparent about where our money comes from and where it goes with annual reports, just like non-profits publish.

Where does the money from membership fees go?

Membership contributions cover AYA’s operational fees, as well as the development and upkeep of this online platform to ensure that our technology is fast, secure, and user-friendly.
