WHAT DO WE KNOW?
Young people are most affected by the persistent problems facing the world. And yet we are frequently overlooked as being the ones to help work these issues out.
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
Young people are the solution. We are the largest, most energetic group of people in the world. When we work together with a common purpose, anything is possible.
WHAT ARE WE HERE FOR?
To channel the indisputably positive power of young people to bring about real progress.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
We train, educate, support and inspire young people to lead development in their countries and communities.
We help young people make responsible choices about their health and their livelihoods.
We give them the skills they need to contribute positively to society.
We create the opportunity for young people to play active roles in policy and decision making.
We have been repeatedly cited as a model of best practice in youth-led development by the World Bank, the UK Department of International Development, UNICEF, UNAIDS and other international institutions.
YOUNG PEOPLE CAN. YOUNG PEOPLE DO.
