CONNECTING YOUNG PEOPLE TO CATALYZE CLIMATE ACTION AND CAREERS

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

 

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, we have offerings tailored to different needs.

Learning Journey

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.

YCL Network

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, mentorship and Delegations to global events. We help young talents to take the first, and hardest, step towards rising climate careers.

TESTIMONIALS

DANILO FARIAS

from Brazil (YCL Brazil Course 2019)

My experience as a young, low-income young black person sponsored by YCL was tremendous to boost my expertise in climate change, in particular, social and climate justice, climate litigation and environmental racism. This opportunity gave me access to the YCL Network by establishing contacts and partnerships for the development of projects and actions in the area of climate change, as well as, job vacancies, events and even mentoring. 

 

This participation also changed my career perspective and I left the YCL Brazil Course encouraged and energized to think about what the young climate leadership wants for the planet and for future generations.Besides helping the career perspective of many young people, YCL  also aims to democratize their spaces by increasing representation of black and low-income people, therefore deserves full support and visibility in their actions.
