¡Palabra!: Youth Ally

Youth Ally: A person who acts in partnership with young people, but does not identify as a juvenile. A youth ally grows out of cultural, social, and institutional relationships, partnerships, and mentoring. An ally of youth is a person who supports and stands up for the rights and the dignity of the youth, especially when young people are not present or otherwise capable of representing themselves.
