Youth Connect Leadership Program

The Youth Connect Leadership Program is a social and educational peer leadership program to empower young people to create meaningful change in their community.

Delivered in partnership with Save the Children, this program facilitates activities and mentorship for young people ages 14–25 from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Youth Connect empowers participants by providing them with a safe and supportive space that facilitates open discussion, decision making and action implementation.

We offer leadership training and mentorship support to help our young people learn and develop skills required to lead projects they see as meaningful. As a result, they can begin to combat issues they have identified in their community and create stronger intercultural engagement.
