Challenge

Young people everywhere have the ideas and passion to change the world. Often, they need to develop skills and competencies to get their ideas off the ground. That is where TakingITGlobal's social innovation programming and supports come into the picture.

Solution

We will empower young social innovators by: inciting and enhancing a strong sense of civic identity and responsibility that focuses on the importance of leadership and practical, community-based action; provoking critical thought and meaningful reflection; supporting value-driven work that promotes sustainability; creating learning opportunities that build skills and competencies for life.

Long-Term Impact

To date, we have bolstered the successful start-up of over 200 global initiatives and the skill development of over 650 young people. We endeavour to continue to deliver this kind of impact.
