Challenge

Youth Venture gives young people the support and credibility to be successful changemakers, providing opportunities for leadership and personal development. Of Venturers, 31% are from low-income communities, 33% are from predominantly minority communities, yet all have the potential to launch social ventures, given the right support and encouragement.

Solution

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.

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, and be taken seriously, creating an everyone a changemaker world.
