Imagine a world where all young people lead change and make differences in their communities.

Imagine communities and neighbourhoods in every country where young people routinely make and inform decisions of economic and social significance.
 
What would that be like?
What could change economically, politically and culturally as a result of young people’s involvement?

Welcome to our dream! One that will soon become the reality!

REAL
LIVES.

Young people are the lifeblood of YouthBanks.
It is their energy and imagination that drives and implements all aspects of grant programmes. 
We provide on the ground skills training to make this activity possible and work with local organisations and donors to ensure young people involved have access to necessary guidance and resources.

A unique, simple, and adaptable method of involving young people in community activities, it shifts the power, money and attitudes to demonstrate the value of participatory grant-making at a grassroots level based on a simple, flexible and transferable idea – that YouthBanks are funds run by young people to support practical, youth-led projects that address issues that matter to them to improve their communities: Real Lives. Real Money. Real Change.

REAL
CHANGE.

Begun in the UK in the late 1990’s as a distinct approach that harnesses philanthropy, entrepreneurship and youth development into one initiative,
the YouthBank story is first and foremost a young people’s story: how they see their hometowns and communities, what they understand to be the key issues they face, how they believe these should be tackled and what they can do to effectively make a positive change in their communities.

PARTNERS

THE CHANGE

Long-term change of young people occurs only when we change the perception of the system towards them and their perception of themselves, society, and community. With the growth of self-confidence, responsibility, and empowerment, they will become those who will be able to influence the change of their reality and have the opportunity to become proactive participants in society

as citizens, employees, entrepreneurs, and leaders.
