Telling a New Story of the Worlds Youth

Published on


Stories change the world. For more than two decades, the International Youth Foundation (IYF) and its partners have collectively communicated a new story of the world’s youth. Rather than focus on young people as ‘problems to be solved,’ this meta story upholds the promise and potential of youth, while educating audiences about the all too real challenges that young people, particularly those growing up in marginalized circumstances, face in their journey to a productive adulthood. Central to this new narrative has been demonstrating the role of youth as valuable assets with much to contribute to their societies if given essential support and access to opportunities.
