About Us

Young Changemakers

You are between the ages of 15 and 35. You are making positive impacts in your communities by implementing your ideas, using the existing resources or integrating innovative approaches to solve problems. You are connecting people and ideas to advocate for and address the issues. You are making the world a better place by contributing your knowledge and skills to create solutions and improve people’s lives. You are looking to connect with like-minded people to learn, share, and amplify the impact.

YouthLead.org is the platform for young changemakers like you to provide you with opportunities to connect with like-minded networks of young people, mentors, and resources and events. While focused on youth from the Global South, the platform is available globally.

Request to join YouthLead or Login.

YouthLead Ambassadors

Announcing the YouthLead Ambassadors: 22 young changemakers, who were competitively selected out of nearly 1,500 applicants from over 200 countries!

The YouthLead Ambassadors have a proven track record in mobilizing other young changemakers and youth through their activities. The Ambassadors are taking part in a six-month volunteer program and will play a key role in bringing the benefits of YouthLead to national, regional, and local groups of changemakers. They will also help to grow YouthLead’s global reach and engage interested YouthLead Volunteers.

As part of the program, the YouthLead Ambassadors will implement local activities and contribute their ideas to make YouthLead more relevant to changemakers in their networks and communities.  They will add value to other changemakers’ professional growth, and generate local engagement and peer-to-peer networking.  Learn more about these young changemakers.
