Our mission is to create an inclusive and accessible platform for tomorrow and today’s leaders to unite and co-create solutions for a better future.

Through our 2020 Youth Delegate program, we have upskilled 1000+ youth delegates, nominated by youth-serving organizations and charity partners, providing free access to 40 hours of leadership and advocacy training and guided mentorship sessions with high-level decision-makers. The four-week delegate program is free and open to all young people under the age of 30, from anywhere in the world, to advance their personal and professional growth while overcoming access barriers to education and innovation resources. Members of our 2020 youth delegation represent diverse lived experiences including underrepresented voices such as women, Indigenous Peoples, visible minorities, persons with disabilities and refugees.
