YCL was created to tackle the two main threats against Youth's future: systemic unemployment
and the climate crisis.
Created in 2018 by four Brazilian women, Youth Climate Leaders (YCL) offers solutions to help young people tackle two main challenges of this century: the climate crisis and structural unemployment. Although young people make up the majority of the global population, they continue to encounter barriers to job opportunities and economic security, while dealing with an uncertain future due to the climate crisis.
To reverse this scenario, we aim to empower 1 million young people to lead climate projects as part of a global network. We believe that it is possible to propagate professional opportunities for young people through education and bridging gaps with organizations that already operate in this sector. We also offer access to a global network and opportunities in organizations and projects engaged in the transition to a more just and carbon neutral society.
