Youth Leadership

We invest in youth because they are our region’s greatest asset and strongest hope for social change. Through cultural exchange, our youth gain self-confidence, leadership and critical thinking skills, as well as discover a passion for lifelong community service. With 1 in every 7 young people unemployed throughout the Americas, we strive to close the opportunity gap and ensure our youth are equipped to meaningfully contribute to their community.

  • 9,000 youth
  • 20 countries
