New Action Teams are a Great Way to Help NYRA

Written by NYRA Jan 28, 2009

The National Youth Rights Association is proud to introduce Action Teams! This fall we asked you what barriers stood in the way of getting active in NYRA, you said clearly you wanted more information on how to help. We hear you, and in response have created NYRA Action Teams.

Everyone has different skills and interests, so we’ve created six different teams built around six different tasks to help the cause. The tasks are straight-forward, simple, and easy to do. No matter where you are in the country, or around the world, you can contribute to building a larger movement for the civil rights of young people. The six action teams are: the Fundraising Team, the Research Team, the Recruiting Team, the Blog Team, the Video Team, and the Letter Writing Team.

Even if you only have just an hour a month to help out the cause, it helps! From writing one blog entry a month, to recruiting 2 members a month, everyone can participate in a team. Keep track of how you are doing (and how your team is doing) in the NYRA forum, and win prizes on the NYRA Facebook App. Whoever has the most points at the end of each month is recognized as the NYRA member of the month.

So lend a hand, it couldn’t be easier. Get more info on all six teams and join one or more of them here. Together we can win the rights, respect, and freedom youth deserve.
