The YouthSpark Fund supports great nonprofits working to create education, employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for youth (ages 6-24). With your help youth can get access to education, gain skills training to secure jobs, and start their own ventures. Donations to the YouthSpark Fund will be allocated to seven nonprofits: City Year, Code.org, College Success Foundation, Girls Who Code, NFTE, TakingITGlobal, and University of the People.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Today's youth aspire to build a brighter future, but there is an opportunity divide between young people who have access, skills and opportunities to be successful--and those who do not. With more than 75 million unemployed youth around the world, we must work together to close this divide in order to secure the future of our youth, and of our global economy.
How will this project solve this problem?
The YouthSpark Fund supports top nonprofits on GlobalGiving working to help young people overcome challenges around the world by connecting them with greater opportunities for education, employment and entrepreneurship.
Potential Long Term Impact
By helping YouthSpark organizations access funding, we can all help empower young people around the world to create and seize opportunities to change their world.
