We are currently looking for young, motivated democratic socialists to organize and lead active Young Democratic Socialists chapters at their high school, colleges and universities. As a YDS Leader, you will make connections with fellow, like-minded YDS members from across the nation who share your ideals and vision of a society that puts people over profit.
