To end poverty, youth need to be empowered and educated
Youth unemployment is a global crisis, affecting an estimated 73 million young women and men. COVID-19 has wiped out 20 years of educational gains according to the United Nations.
YOUTH EMPOWERMENT is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 8, ensuring quality education, promoting lifelong learning and sustainable economic growth.
World Vision's Youth Empowerment programs help solve youth unemployment through innovative and practical education, channelling young women and men quickly and directly into employment opportunities, training, or higher education.
We believe that every young person in the world deserves access to an education that will help them reach their full potential and contribute to the development of their communities and countries.
