This project provides seed grants for young people as well as online support, workshops and gatherings, to help young people develop their projects in order to adress social changes.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Young people in Argentina cover only the 17% of the total population. 13% of young people between the ages of 20 and 24 are heads of their households and 26% is unemployed and 15% does not pursue higher education. Youth is seen as vulnerable, and frequently is a subject of repression. YV supports young people to generate solutions to social problems, by helping them lead and launch their own venture. We are gradually contributing to change the negative image that society has of young people.
How will this project solve this problem?
YV supports youth by helping them address social issues in their communities. Youth form teams and create sustainable action plans that must be approved by a panel. Then, they receive seed money and technical support to start their Venture Team.
Potential Long Term Impact
YV is dramatically increasing the proportion of changemakers in the world by effectively reaching youth and providing them the opportunity to see their own potential, develop skills, creating an 'everyone a changemaker world'.
