Abstract: The Youth Astronomy Apprenticeship (YAA) is an initiative to promote science learning among youth age 14–19 from underserved communities. Informed by a social justice approach, strategies implemented in the YAA model are motivated by results from both direct practice and research. A key strategy in this effort is to provide continuity of support and mentoring, and opportunities for deeper learning and increased personal responsibilities.
