Young Invincibles

Young Invincibles (YI) is a national non-profit, non-partisan organization that mobilizes young adults, ages 18 to 34, to put them in the center of the debate and to find solutions that will improve their lives. YI was started by students and young workers during the health care debate in summer 2009 to help give young people a voice in that critical effort and expand youth access to decent health insurance and care. In the short time since its founding, YI has grown into an important voice for the health care needs of young adults, coordinating outreach and advocacy campaigns at the national and state levels, and working in coalition with dozens of youth and non-youth organizations to educate young adults about health care.
