Help us empower a new generation of leaders devoted to solving the climate crisis!
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.
YCL USE THE RESOURCES?
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.
By August 2020, 40% of our fellows received financial support from YCL, with the support from our donations! See their testimonials below:
Created in 2018, Youth Climate Leaders (YCL) trains and connects young people with networks and opportunities to build a career in the area of climate and sustainability. 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 catalyze the professional futures of young people through education and bridging the gaps with organizations that already operate in the sector. After being trained by a YCL program, participants become a part of the YCL Network, a global community of practice with members from different areas of expertise. By June 2020, YCL is comprised of over 200 YCL Fellows from 20 countries.
