Young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being ignored and overlooked. We work with young people so that 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.

We are run out of hubs in ten countries across Africa, Asia and in the UK and USA, with a wider network of partners across the world. We have been working with young people since 1985 and our work is led by thousands of young volunteers and advocates every year.

Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

We will empower young people with data, skills, and networks and connect them to real opportunities to participate so that they can take the lead in exercising accountability for the SDGs. Today, 50% of the world‘s population is under 25; if the data revolution does not engage young citizens, there is a danger that it will merely reinforce inequalities in data engagement and result in improved data that has little relevance to people’s lived experiences and fails to be transformative, leaving millions behind.
