Global Change Powered By Youth Innovators.

The Youth Working Group's mission is to say YES! to as many ideas of young change makers and leaders across the globe and empower as many as we can. We believe that young people not only have immense resources of experience to draw on but also that by empowering them early and often, we will see them change the world for the better throughout their lives. 


Building our future today.


Since its start, the YWG has served an important role in growing the impact of the U.S. National Commission to UNESCO, built valuable partnerships with leading global change makers and organizations, and worked closely with the U.S. State Department, all while opening doors for youth engagement.
