A Message to Our Summit Community:


In just a few months, the coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated the fragility of our social and economic systems, especially for young people, as well as the resilience of youth. Youth economic opportunity practitioners, funders, and youth leaders are trying to make sense of this changing landscape, adapt their activities in the short-term to support resilience, and consider how to build stronger systems in the future to support youth social and economic inclusion. 

Learn about how the 2020 GYEO Summit pivoted to meet this challenge 

2020 GYEO Virtual Summit


The GYEO Summit held May through October 2020 convened seven virtual sessions with live break-outs, technical content sharing, and trainings focusing on lessons learned from the past eight months and the road ahead for youth economic opportunities. Together with the youth development community, we explored critical program and policy investments in young people’s social and economic inclusion as we adapt and rebuild from the impacts of COVID-19.
