Why Partner with the Youth Assembly

Today, there are 1.2 billion young people aged 15 to 24 years (youth are up to 35 years old in some countries), accounting for 16% of the global population. The  highest percentage of youth live in the least developed countries. While youth potential has remained largely unfulfilled, young people’s level of engagement in social issues has skyrocketed. According to the  United Nations, youth are key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Youth Assembly partners play an important role in the development of our program. You’ll contribute ideas, resources, expertise, volunteer power, and in-kind support as we work towards accomplishing our mission of empowering youth for global change. 

Join us in building a movement of emerging leaders. Help us nurture a large network of young delegates from around the world. Provide learning and networking opportunities, promote intergenerational dialogue and propeling ideas from creation to implementation. By engaging the next generation of leaders and decision makers, you’ll be working towards shaping a more interconnected world.

“The AFS Youth Assembly enabled me to turn the global knowledge that I gained from my study abroad experience into an innovative solution for global issues. Meeting with representatives of various NGOs, leaders and activists gave me the chance to learn about ongoing projects and the gaps which still need to be filled on global issues, helping me to reshape the path I was taking towards my vision.”
