About Us

Why We Exist

With a global population of more than 1,8 billion people, young people are the largest untapped resource in the world, possessing talents and ambition that can overcome our society’s greatest challenges. To achieve the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we need to empower young people – they are not only our future leaders, but they are also the ones most interested in the future of our planet.

 

Yunus & Youth believes that connecting young people from all corners of the world and giving them the tools and resources they need to develop social business solutions can lead to successfully tackling issues that have been left unsolved in our society for far too long.
