WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF YOUNG LEADERS.
WHERE BRILLIANT IDEAS ARE BORN.
Imagine a world where youth are the world’s greatest innovators, rising to take ownership of their purpose, their vision, and their contribution to society and to the entire world.

“Being a part of YLI has given me the hope to believe that as a first generation Cape-Verdean college student-- I too matter. Not only is my voice being heard, but I am being given the opportunity and resources to effect change. This is what YLI has done for me.”
