The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Youth Venture aims to inspire and support an entire generation of young people around the world to become changemakers.
Youth Venture invests in young people, enabling them to launch their own sustainable social Ventures, and then connects them into a global network. The Ventures are entirely youth intiated and led. We reach out to young people and inspire them to take intiative in their communities. Then we support our Venturers by providing guidance, tools, and a process for designing and pitching their Venture plans.
When the Venture team is ready to launch, Youth Venture offers:
Tools and support
Allies who provide mentoring and expertise
Identity as part of the global Youth Venture movement
A supportive network of fellow Youth Venturers
After the Venture has launched, we work to stay continually involved with the team, and we connect Venturers into a global fellowship of likeminded young people, helping tehm see taht they are part of something bigger, catalyzing the movement.
