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. Microsoft supports young people with the skills they need to succeed in their future, because everyone starts somewhere.

Solution

The YouthSpark Tech Fund supports top nonprofits around the globe who are working to provide young people with the technology skills and resources they need for future education and employment success.

Long-Term Impact

By helping YouthSpark organizations access funding, we can all help young people around the world access the technology skills and resources they need to create and seize opportunities to change their world. Join Microsoft YouthSpark in investing in the future of youth, because everyone starts somewhere.
