Get Involved and Support YALSA

YALSA needs your help! Whether it's recruiting new members, advocating for youth services in your community or giving to YALSA, there's a way for you to get involved:

  • Encourage your colleagues to join YALSA! Use our recruitment tools, including handouts, presentations, and papers on teen services topics and YALSA events.
  • Advocate for youth services in your community! Take advantage of YALSA’s advocacy resources.
  • Represent YALSA by serving as our ALA Liaison or our official rep on the USBBY Board of Directors or an IFLA Section.  The USBBY and IFLA opportunities are only available every two years, as YALSA shares this role with AASL and ALSC.  Contact the YALSA office for details.
  • Give to YALSA! Support YALSA’s work by making donations to the Friends of YALSA, the Leadership Endowment, the Margaret Edwards Trust or the Bill Morris Endowment. Individuals can also support YALSA via planned giving.
