Asset 77_72x.png

The 2019 GYEO Young Leaders Program included dedicated leadership development activities for young people ahead of the 13th Annual Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit. The program took place on October 1 (1:00PM-5:00PM) and October 2 (8:30AM-2:30 PM).

Together with our partners, the Global Opportunity Youth Initiative (GOYI), the 2019 program brought together a cohort of young leaders who are joined by their common commitment to serving their communities. The program helped participants gain a deeper understanding of critical leadership skills such as communication, healthy mentorship and relationship building, and the power of social networks.

Participants in the 2019 GYEO Young Leaders program:


  • Joined a global network of peers, experts and potential mentors who share a common commitment to service in their communities.  


  • Learned about critical leadership topics such as effective communication, healthy relationship building and mentorship, and how to develop and maintain social networks to support your goals.


  • Connected directly with experts through one-to-one and group mentorship activities designed to put your leadership skills into practice.


  • Learned by doing and apply the skills developed through the Young Leader program at the 2019 GYEO Summit.
