Programs: Educating and providing accessible information, capacity building and networking opportunities to young people and youth based projects: global youth action network strengthens the capacity of young social change makers through our e-courses, webinars and partnerships with international conferences focused on leadership development and leveraging the power of web tools for social change. Also, global youth action network distributes information about united nations activities to its members and network through blogs, newsletters, publications and printed materials.
My involvement in the organization's parent group of TakingITGlobal in Toronto Canada provides it's members with so much for their success in social change for social good. I've participated in their Sprout E-Course through the Microsoft Innovate for Good online community, as well as their Culture Connect pilot program. Both, especially Sprout, have given and empowered me to take what I love most to change the world for the better. What the team does at GYAN and TakingITGlobal really provides youth with the skills, resources, and other ways to have their voices heard.
