What We Do
We are a group of young people who are concerned about various social and environmental issues that we currently face in our local communities and on a global scale. Our generation is the one that needs to come up with solutions and our organization is an outlet for youth to make a difference and get their voices heard, no matter how small they may be.
youwaz. is a website and social media platform raising awareness on social, political and environmental issues in our communities. In 2013, we launched the podcast series Youwaz - You Are The Voice, which now has over 2000 followers on Spreaker and is available on several major online radio & podcast platforms such as Tunein Radio, Podfeed, DoubleTwist & Stitcher Radio. You can listen to all our episodes pre-recorded, download them to listen on the go or listen to a new live episode on Fridays at 4 PM (EST).
We are young people raising their voices on all sorts of issues we face in our local communities and on a global scale. You can do the same, whether it's climate change, child labour, war or local poverty and food bank use, you can raise awareness about it and we will help you make the changes. The name youwaz. basically means your voice, or the youth voice.
