Start a Chapter

Fill out the Chapter Interest Form today!

YDSA is a democratic socialist organization with chapters at schools across the country. Our members work in their campus and community to fight for progressive socialist values. We strive to build an organization that works across the whole campus community, with students, faculty, campus workers and everyone affected by capitalism. Are you interested in starting a YDSA chapter at your high school, college, or university? Fill out this form, and an organizer will reach out to you soon about next steps. We tend to get a higher rate of interest all around the same time, so response times may vary. If you have any questions, or just want to say hello, please email yds@dsausa.org.

If you are a member of an unofficial YDSA chapter or organizing committee and are interested in gaining official chapter status, please email anna@dsausa.org. If you’re not sure whether or not your YDSA chapter has official status, check our chapter list here – if your chapter is not listed, it’s not official!

Thank you for reaching out and we look forward to working with you toward a democratic socialist future!
