Our strategic work to build youth capacity for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) includes mobilizing youth as outreach leaders and amplifying youth perspectives to raise awareness about the global goals. Outreach leaders receive training about the SDGs and choose a project to do in addition to any community work they are already doing. We provide 3-4 months of consultation to outreach leaders on their SDG projects and amplify their actions alongside partners during each cycle of the campaign.Click on each youth name to learn more about how they are impacting the SDGs.
