Invest in Young People to Change the World
The Global Youth Empowerment Fund is an initiative to empower young people, ages 18 to 40, around the world to impact their communities by investing in grassroots, community projects. A partnership of JCI and the SDG Action Campaign (formerly the UN Millennium Campaign), the Fund will offer grants and training to youth-led projects that advance the Global Goals for Sustainable Development in local communities.
Partnership for Impact
Partners of the Global Youth Empowerment Fund are joining a worldwide movement to advance ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and injustice and halting climate change by investing funds to support community-based projects.
Funds donated will go to grants of up to US $25,000 to support grassroots organizations or initiatives that are led by young people. Along with financial investment, project leaders will also receive training and support to ensure maximum impact of each dollar invested.
Power of Young People
The Global Youth Empowerment Fund taps into an often-forgotten renewable resource: the passion and energy of young people. Through global collaboration, we can unite to provide opportunities and guidance for young people to harness their enthusiasm to initiate waves of global change that ensure human dignity for all.
Thank you for joining the movement!
