Challenge

Today's young people face an opportunity divide - a gap between those who have the access, skills and opportunities to be successful and those who do not. Closing this opportunity divide is one of the most important actions we can all take to secure the future of our youth and the future of our global economy.

Solution

The program empowers youth to imagine and realize their full potential by connecting them with greater opportunities for education, employment and entrepreneurship, helping them create a real impact for a better tomorrow.

Long-Term Impact

YouthSpark is a global initiative which aims to create opportunities for 300 million youth in more than 100 countries by 2015.
