Introducing our new Youth Leaders & Young Professionals Program!
Our former ‘Young Professionals’ program is now the Youth Leaders and Youth Professionals (YLYPs) program!
Our mission is to amplify the voices of youth leaders and young professionals, providing a platform for their perspectives on gender equality and channels for their advocacy at the United Nations. We work to convene young people to consult and contribute to the advancement of the international feminist and women’s movement.
Keep an eye out for more information on our YLYPs program and how to get involved. We’ll be sending out more details soon!
