We are thrilled to announce our YLYP Delegate Champions for CSW67! Through collaboration with Women Have Wings, the YLYPs have been able to grant five youth advocates funding to travel to NYC or host events and watch parties in their communities for the NGO CSW67 Forum!
Connecting young advocates like our Delegate Champions to the CSW processes is an essential part of uplifting the future generation of civil society professionals. As one of the largest gatherings of global feminist civil society and gender equality advocates, it is vital to represent the ideas, goals, and experiences of global youth. Engaging with the needs and concerns of younger generations can create a powerful effort to move the needle and accelerate progress towards mutual goals.
Join this informal meet and greet session to connect with selected YLYP Mentors. We hope this event can be the start of new meaningful mentorships and relationships between activists of all ages and experiences!
