About Us

{Young}ist is your source for youth-led, fiercely independent political and cultural news, anaylsis, storytelling, and creative intervention by and for Millennials-in-action!

What We Do

{Young}ist was born in response to the ongoing underrepresentation of young people in mainstream media narratives and traditional publishing spaces.

We are dedicated to bringing together and empowering those young people who've been most underserved by corporate news media through delivering fresh, fiercely independent news and views by and for Millennials-in-action.

{Young}ist is a young people-powered platform for citizen journalism, digital storytelling, creative intervention, and more aimed at elevating the stories and struggles of youth across the globe.

Our Mission
  1. Take leadership in building a youth-powered mediascape that is reponsive and accountable to young people who've been underserved by mainstream media outlets
  2. Network and amplify the stories of young people leading transformative projects in their communities
  3. Foster vibrant conversation between young activists, journalists, and culture creatives by delivering a diversity of content - from cultural analyisis and artistic intervention, to political news and movement storytelling
Statement of Principles
  1. We nurture change by providing a dynamic online space that’s run by us and for us.
  2. We reject any influence of advertisers or big donors, and make all decisions regarding {Young}ist content and design according to principles of participatory self-management.
  3. We are accountable to our extended community of artists and organizers, while still maintaining our autonomy.
  4. We strive in both content and conduct to interrogate and dismantle systems of privilege, power, and oppression in society at large; {Young}ist strives to highlight and amplify the stories and voices of frontline communities left out of prevailing movement narratives.
  5. We value the privacy of our users, and will allow neither government nor corporations to access user information.
