About Us

Youth participation is vital in society.
So you have come here to find out a little more about us, great read on. The World Youth Organization focuses on three strands of work; Youth Empowerment, Education and Advocacy. How we do this, can be broken down.


The World Youth Organization advances education and relieves unemployment for every young person. Together with our partners, we work in 41 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded young people, to the benefit of all youth, everywhere.

Our world is changing. The world is becoming more divided, where some countries flourish with opportunity, and others remain sparse with the lack of education. We are constantly finding new ways in brightening the futures of today’s youth, of the most disadvantaged young people around the world. We want every young person to have the same start in life, with a good education and have the framework to provide high standard opportunities to advance in life.Kieran Goodwin, Chief Executive
