Because past generations left young people saddled with debt, we’ve begun to negotiate discounts for ridesharing, parking, furniture, and more.
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.
In 2018 and beyond
We keep tabs on your elected representatives to ensure they’re doing what’s best for you.
We save you money and negotiate discounts with socially responsible brands on your behalf.

Looking for something else? Let’s talk.
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.
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.
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.
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.
