Challenge

Youth from underserved communities in Washington, D.C. face many significant barriers to achieving academic success and rarely have the opportunity to have their voices and opinions heard at the decision-making level.

Solution

Through interactive workshops that empower youth to speak out on issues they care about, this program will allow our Youth Leaders to research, design and facilitate their own workshops to educate their peers, community members and policy members on global issues related to access to education.

Long-Term Impact

Global Kids Youth Leaders will promote the advancement of the movement toward all girls' right to 12 years of safe, quality education by educating the leaders of today and empowering the leaders of tomorrow to take action.
