Welcoming Katie and Solomon to the YLC!

GFC is happy to announce that two amazing young leaders Katie and Solomon joined the Youth Leadership Council! We appreciate their interest and commitment in shaping up more participatory processes for GFC. On our way to improve understanding about youth engagement and issues affecting young people, as well as to practice a more inclusive decision-making process, we believe that Solomon and Katie are true assets and tons of inspiration.

Get to know them below.

Katie Fuhs

As the Operations and Programs Coordinator at Accountability Lab, Katie helps to build a new generation of active citizens and responsible leaders around the world by supporting young change-makers to develop and implement positive ideas for integrity in their communities. Prior to her current position, Katie facilitated the participation of international security leaders and experts from democracies around the world at the 2018 Halifax International Security Forum. Before the Forum, she worked on behalf of Global Development Incubator on the development and expansion of a West African capacity-building and youth leadership program, Emerging Public Leaders. Katie graduated cum laude from Dartmouth College, where she studied government and cultural anthropology, was a War and Peace Fellow, and played Division 1 soccer and rugby. At university, Katie also organized and led Cully’s 5k Run, raising $10,000 for the local suicide and emergency hotline.
