CONNECTING YOUNG PEOPLE TO CATALYZE CLIMATE ACTION AND CAREERS

YCL offers a comprehensive solution to catalyze climate careers and actions for the climate crisis:

  • Learning

    Journeys

    We select and train young talents through hands-on international immersions and local courses. Participants witness first-hand the impacts of climate change and improve their technical and leadership skills working together.

     

    They also have mentorship sessions to leave our programs with a clear action plan to start or boost their careers. From days to weeks, national or international: we have offerings tailored to different needs.

  • YCL Global

    Network

    After being trained by any YCL program, participants become part of the YCL Network, a community of practice with members from 20 countries, 4 continents and multiple areas of expertise.

     

    YCL alumni promote our programs in their countries and lead YCL Hubs, acting as multipliers by facilitating educational activities and implementing projects locally. They also exchange resources and team up on projects and campaigns.

  • Professional Opportunities

    Members of the YCL Network can apply to Field Placement assignments worldwide with our partner organizations, having the opportunity to increase their work experience on climate change and use the skills acquired during our trainings.

     

    They also have access to job vacancies, mentorships, and Delegations to global events. We help young talents to take the first, and hardest, step towards realizing their climate careers.

TESTIMONIALS

My YCL Learning journey was the most intellectual and emotionally gratifying experience to date. YCL gave me a platform to interact with the future climate leaders from around the globe which not only opened a new dimension in me regarding climate change but also equipped with the right tools and techniques. The group exercise I did with people from 4 different nationalities infused my thoughts with a goal for climate action. And the visits to various foundations, institutes, corporates, research labs have endured new hope to combat climate change in an innovative manner.
