why donate

to ycl?

The mission of empowering climate careers became as big as the climate crisis itself, therefore we have created an ambitious scaling plan to match the challenge we are facing. And after these 2 years of activities, we have developed the experience, skills, networks and passion to take our work to the next level. But to achieve our mission to train one million young people by 2030, we need your support! Therefore we invite you to make a donation to sponsor our activities.



SCHOLARSHIPS: One of the main pillars of YCL training is the diversity of the selected participants, which is why we make great efforts to provide scholarships to young leaders that has a great potential, but do not have the resources to join our network. 


MAINTENANCE OF THE YCL LOCAL HUBS: Our local hubs are in the field, offering not only the necessary structure, but also proposing local projects and activities. They are dedicated to mobilization of the Network locally, as well as expansion and management of partnerships with organizations that will offer professional opportunities for our network. 

EVENTS AND OTHER INITIATIVES:Y YCL goes beyond 'giving a voice' to young people by providing training and concrete opportunities to act now, start or advance in their impact careers. Your donation will help us empowering our inititiatives, such as the Day of the Climate Professional, YCL labs, that has impact in thousands of young people around the world.

    "As a low-income young black person, receiving a scholarship from YCL was tremendous to my career. The access to the YCL Network allowed me to establish contacts and partnerships in the area of ​​climate change, as well as mentoring. YCL aims to democratize their spaces by increasing representation of black and low-income people, therefore deserves full support and visibility in their actions".
