Last week saw the United Nations High Level Meeting on Youth to mark the end of the International Year of Youth. Jessica Harris, our Director of Investment and Partnerships attended and spoke at a one day side event entitled ‘Giving it Back, Passing it on: Corporate Engagement and Youth Philanthropy as Pathways to Development’. The event was attended by over 500 youth activists, philanthropists, private sector and foundation representatives and they were honoured to be joined by the Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon.
