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.
