The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) has kicked off a new and exciting opportunity for people who want to mentor youth-led organizations from around the world and help them to become active citizens in their communities and bring about global change.
The UN-Habitat Urban Youth Fund is dedicated to empowering global youth by providing grants and capacity building to selected organizations in developing countries. Yearly, more than 8,000 youth-led organizations apply for a grant of up to $25,000. Approximately 40 organizations were selected this year to receive a grant, training and ongoing support. These youth-led groups span various sectors, from technology and agriculture to governance, education and poverty reduction.
This is a unique opportunity for grassroots, experts and consultants to work with top youth groups globally, and take youth empowerment to the next level. As a mentor you will be an official part of our UN-Habitat Urban Youth Fund community, with access to a global network of emerging youth leaders.
