Youth All Access (YAA) is an online-based platform that utilizes social media as a tool for youth between the ages of 8 to 18 to participate in contests, campaigns, service learning projects and personal development. Through their participation, youths demonstrate how they have been able to realize, promote, and live by the Youth Responsibility Act values. Their direct participation provides a candid look at the social service support that youths desire and require and allows Small Seeds to better customize our other youth programs to their specific needs.
