YDSA is the youth and student wing of DSA. To become a YDSA member you need to:
- Be a DSA member
- Be on the membership list of an official YDSA chapter
Step 1) Become a DSA member
As a democratic, grassroots organization, YDSA is continuing the political revolution for the long term. By paying dues, YDSA members self-fund our own tools for liberation. No one is turned away for lack of funds.
- Join DSA at the YDSA rates of $20/year or $5/month here
- If you lack funds, request a dues waiver here
- Join DSA via the general membership form here
Have questions about joining? Check out our membership & dues FAQ here.
Step 2) Join or start an official YDSA chapter
If you’re already a DSA member, update your YDSA Chapter affiliation here. This is for our record-keeping – you still need to contact a local chapter directly to get involved with them.
You can find a full list of official YDSA chapters here.
If there isn’t already YDSA chapter near you, follow the steps on our “Start a Chapter” page here to start organizing.
