Born amidst the social, economic, and political crises in Puerto Rico, Impacto Juventud provides youth a platform to enhance their empowerment, sense of belonging, and political efficacy. As an organization, we hope to inspire youth and the communities they come from to believe that other futures are possible— futures that are healthier, happier, and more equitable.
Impacto Juventud provides programming on a number of challenging social issues, such as children’s rights, gender based violence, voting rights, natural disaster response, mental health, and environmental justice. We seek to activate and engage the next generation of change makers, whether that’s through tutoring, social media campaigns, political action, community events, or virtual workshops.

Impacto Juventud mobilizes youth to engage in political advocacy work, such as the time we traveled to San Juan to lobby Senators to pass legislation aimed at reducing child poverty in Puerto Rico.
