We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being sidelined. We are the agency that works with young people so they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities.
ABOUT the role
World leaders have signed up to the Global Goals, which promise to end poverty, inequality and climate change. These promises can only be kept with the unique power of young people: taking action to influence their leaders, working together to use their collective power, and by having the opportunities to influence the decisions that affect their lives. Youth Power is a global campaign to support young people making sure the promises of the Global Goals become reality.
The Global Leaders are a group of dedicated, knowledgeable young people, aged 18-28, from around the world who are passionate about youth development and the role of young people in holding leaders to account. They are the forefront of Youth Power, leading the delivery of this innovative global campaign within their countries as well as at the global level.
