Summary describing your organization::

Youth Against Militarism is a group of students, parents, teachers, and community members.  The mission of Youth Against Militarism is to set boundaries for and provide alternatives to the military influence on youth at schools and in the community. We have been meeting since the Fall of 2004 and have had sweeping successes in the Poudre School District.  We also have trained draft counselors who can help young people explore alternatives to the military and put together a conscientious objector file. We welcome participation from all who share our mission.
