About us

We develop and support a growing global network of young people who use the YouthBank model to create practical positive change in the communities they live in.

 

We seek to build an ecosystem of individuals, organisations and businesses that share our values and our aim of bringing decision making opportunities to young people.

We provide practical contribution to the transformative #ShiftThePower movement, where young people have real power over how real money is spent in their communities.

We stand for redistribution and allocation of budgets from private and public sources to support young people's agenda for change in their communities.

We encourage organisations and their partners to enhance or change operating structures to support and relate to young people.

Our Vision

Our vision is to live in a world where all young people lead change and make difference in their communities.

Communities and neighbourhoods in every country where young people make decisions of economic and social significance.

We believe in this world. We believe in change.

Our Mission

Our mission is to work with worldwide organisations who want to give young people authentic leadership, decision-making and community-building opportunities while growing the network and supporting young people through grant-making. We have developed a framework, training and resources that enable organisations to provide necessary support with confidence and integrity.

YouthBank International seeks to build an ecosystem of individuals, organisations and businesses that share our values and our aim of bringing decision making opportunities to young people.
