Since 2007, Summit sponsors have played a critical role to enable Making Cents to convene the GYEO community to gather and learn, engage in honest dialogue, form new partnerships, and grow our global professional network.


Today, the GYEO community has a vital role to play in the immediate response to the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on young people, and to how we re-imagine youth economic and social inclusion in a post-COVID-19 world. We invite sponsors to join us as critical partners in this effort, and as we shift our global community from an in-person convening to an online engagement between now and September 2020.


Sponsors can support GYEO online engagement and learning, while bringing visibility to their investments and thought leadership in the following ways:


  • Joining as a Track Sponsor to host one of four online GYEO Virtual Series plus the fall GYEO Forum between May and September. Track sponsorship includes prominent brand placement, an opportunity to serve in a presenter role and co-curate the discussion in collaboration with the GYEO team.

  • Sponsoring a stand-alone “Expert Interview” with a leading expert on critical issues relevant to economic opportunity, youth development, policy, and more.

  • Sponsoring the fall GYEO Forum (in-person or online).

  • Sponsoring the development of a “Road Map” White Paper to capture the learning outcomes from the GYEO Virtual Series and Online Learning Content. Funds raised will support the costs of a consultant to lead the development and dissemination of the White Paper. Sponsors will be acknowledged for their support for the White Paper.

  • Asking our team about shaping custom sponsorship opportunities.

All sponsors will be acknowledged in online GYEO communications between now and September 2020 (i.e., e-Blasts, virtual events, newsletter) and on the Summit website.

To schedule a sponsorship call, please contact Sarah Sladen, Director, YEO Network: SarahS@makingcents.com.
