We started AYA to achieve one goal: to improve the lives of young people.
In 2015, $3B was spent on lobbying, stealing the ears of those we elect and kicking our wants and needs off of the political to do list. Looking around, it seemed obvious that everyone was being listened to — except for us and our peers. To create the future we want, it became clear that we first had to have a seat at the decision table.
We started AYA because we want to be heard. With our very own lobbying platform, we’ve made it easy for anyone to connect with their representatives and demand action on issues important to them. And because we know that life is expensive for young people, we’ve negotiated exclusive discounts on products and services that might make things a little easier.
AYA is here to speak up. Add your voice and be a part of it.

Support YOUR Lobbyist
We believe that lobbying can be used as a force for good. Lobbying by definition is simply influencing a politician about a specific issue. The problem right now is that corporations, wealthy individuals, and even our parents and grandparents have lobbyists, not everyday young people.
That’s why we went out and got our own lobbyist. A lobbyist who represents YOU, the concerned young American. AYA members get regular updates from lobbyists in Washington who are fighting for you and unique engagement opportunities.
