Mission Statement

The Global Youth ACTION Network is a collaboration among youth and youth-serving organizations to share information, resources and solutions to promote greater youth engagement. The GYAN creates the opportunity for every young person to be heard, leverages their voices to impact national and global agendas and provides tools, recognition and financial support for youth who take positive action to improve our world - community by community.

Description

We work closely with the United Nations and many youth serving organizations internationally to build a global voice of youth. With the Foundation of America: Youth in Action (in LA) as our partner organization (and fiscal conduit) we are surveying young people around the planet, asking them: What are the top three issues in your country? Top solutions? We consolidate thse surveys and present them to build national youth platforms in every country around the world. We additionally provide a shared resource database that allows young people and youth serving organizations around the world to connect.And finally we challenge young people to make a difference in their communities and provide $1000 awards to those who demonstrate that they have made a difference.
