Kentucky Youth Advocates
Kentucky Youth Advocates (KYA) is a non-partisan, non-profit, children's advocacy organization. KYA represents a voice for Kentucky's most precious asset – its youth. They believe that Kentucky's youth deserve the opportunities and resources necessary to ensure their productive development and health. They work on behalf of Kentucky's children with the state legislature, the community, and the media. KYA listens to children, their families, and service providers who are reluctant or unable to raise questions about existing policies.
KYA promotes positive changes and policies that impact children by providing research, timely publications on issues and collaborating with a variety of groups to craft policies that positively affect Kentucky's children, especially those who are poor and otherwise disadvantaged.
