Who we are
BYOP is a live community of youth, supported by adults, who are fighting for justice in the Boston area and beyond! We are involved in local, regional, and national projects for social and youth justice. BYOP was created in 1996 by youth who wanted to organize to make a positive change in their community. Our unique youth-led structure puts YOUTH in the leadership position at our organization – they make the decisions, they lead the way, they create the change, they inspire their peers. BYOP is centered in our counter-cultural MISSION & VALUES, which can be found in the menu to the left. To learn more about the campaigns we are currently involved in and those we have led in the past, please visit our WHAT WE DO section. In this section, you will learn more about our people, our story, and our work – past, present, and future! BYOP’s contact information & directions to our Boston headquarters are also available here, in the CONTACT US section. BYOP is sponsored by Third Sector New England.
