Young Change Agents for educators.

        "Young Change Agents provides a rare educational experience because it does not merely ask students to observe and catalog the world, but rather, to mold it. After learning how the world operates in a conventional classroom, YCA helps answer the often unarticulated question that lingers in the back of many students' minds: 'now what are you going to do about it?"
