Despite real progress, significant and growing needs among the world’s youth are unmet. Supporting young people to make wise decisions about their health, providing them with access to education and livelihood opportunities, and allowing them to become engaged citizens in their communities will enable countries to harness the assets of young people in support of social and economic development. We believe the best solution to the world's greatest challenges are young people themselves. How do we know? We work with them, everyday and around the world.
The Alliance for International Youth Development (AIYD) is a community of practice and advocacy platform of 24 leading U.S.-based youth and community development organizations. The Youth Alliance provides an opportunity for engaged organizations and individuals to share and discuss effective practices and to advocate for and inform policies that support and impact youth worldwide.
The Youth Alliance calls for international donors, including the United States government, to make informed and targeted investments in youth. To support and advance its mission, the alliance has developed a strategic partnership with InterAction.
