About the Youth Delegate Program

  • 12 Weeks of Youth Delegate Program Leadership Development Cohort 9 of the Youth Delegate Program kicks off on October 23rd 2023 and lasts till January 29th 2024. During the YDP, Delegates follow a 12-week non-academic programing designed to build delegates’ capacity to create change, influence others, and take action.
  • Engaging Workshops & Peer-to-Peer LearningEach Monday during the Program, Delegates gather from 10 am – 12 pm EST for an engaging workshop that aligns with the Leadership topic for the week. At each Coordination Call, we welcome a facilitator to guide an interactive session to help Delegates gain new skills and knowledge and identify different ways they can be applied. Delegates also share their perspectives and engage each other in conversations, sharing successes and failures while inspiring each other to take action for the SDGs.
  • Inspiring ActionDuring the program, Delegates get to lead or join Activation Groups. Activation Groups are thematic groups of like-minded Changemakers that meet to discuss or co-create solutions together. Any Delegate can start an Activation Group during the Cohort, and are autonomous and self-run by Delegates.
  • CommunityAll Delegates join our Changemaker community, and have access to our community network, exclusive Delegate/Alumni events, as well as events and resources that are open to the entire community. Delegates can also propose and facilitate their own events to take place on our global platform.
