About The YACU

The Young Americans Coalition for Unity (YACU) is empowering young people across America to engage in politics and make a difference. As the US's only youth-led non-partisan & bipartisan organization focused on youth political engagement, the YACU seeks to give everyone -- no matter their party, ideology, or background -- a chance to make change. We're hosting special events, creating a nationwide network of local chapters, and fostering bipartisan discussions daily.

At the YACU, you can volunteer, lead, make new friends, and pursue opportunities only our coalition can provide. Whatever you believe, wherever you are, and why ever you're here: the YACU welcomes you.

Our Mission

The Young Americans Coalition for Unity is a nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging youth in politics and promoting unity and bipartisanship. We work to empower both high school and college students to engage in bipartisan discussion and become politically involved in their local community and national politics.

Our Board

The Board of the YACU is comprised of leaders of major teams at the YACU. Board members are either founders of the organization or carefully selected and elected to their position by the other board members to fulfill a vacancy. The Board works to lead each of their respective teams, as well as drive the organization as a whole, making decisions that affect the social structure.

The YACU would also like to thank the following people for their work in the early days of the organization and the time they devoted for a better, bipartisan future:

Iris Lin, co-founder and former Organizing Director

Aidan Chinn, co-founder and former Digital Director

Jazmin Albertie, co-founder and former Organizing Director

Aiden Rood, co-founder and former Communications Director

Charlie Liu, former Technology Director

Andrew LaBerge, former Communications Director
