Meet Our Youth Champions

 

Thank you to all who applied to the Youth Champions Initiative. Our Champions were selected from over 200 applications from amazing youth leaders in India, Ethiopia, Pakistan, and the US states of Louisiana and Mississippi!

LEAD CHANGE

 

Nineteen Youth Champions participated in a week-long incubator in Los Altos, California, USA, from December 5-11, 2014.

 

Youth Champions are being supported through capacity building, leadership development, mentorship, project funding (ranging from $8,000 – $12,000) and technical assistance to help launch creative projects improving SRHR in their respective regions of the world.
