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.

Solution

The YouthSpark Fund supports top nonprofits on GlobalGiving working to help young people overcome challenges around the world by connecting them with greater opportunities for education, employment and entrepreneurship.

Long-Term Impact

By helping YouthSpark organizations access funding, we can all help empower young people around the world to create and seize opportunities to change their world.
