GLOBAL YOUTH SUMMIT: A Multi-sector Partnership
Young people today are the leaders of tomorrow. The role of present-day leaders is to prepare and empower the next generation through education and experiences that will enable them to better understand complex global challenges and trends.
GYS has engaged top leaders from the government, non-government, and business sectors as mentors to the thousands of young leaders who participated in the Global Youth Summit for eight years.
