Until and unless global leaders can break this power dynamic, and create trusted spaces for authentic listening, youths will not be empowered to drive generational change.
Why are we here
More than 60% of the world’s youth live in Asia
Access to opportunities and connections are becoming critical gaps in meeting youth priorities. While many stakeholders across the public, private, and social sectors are investing in initiatives that support youth development, they often operate in silos within a fragmented ecosystem that fails to include young people in decision-making.
If enterprising young Asians get the capital they need to solve the challenges they are facing, it will be a future where nobody is left behind.
ayPact’s flagship initiatives are underpinned by 2 principles:
To advocate for youths as invaluable assets; To drive partnerships that harness these assets for impact creation.
Grab a Coffee - A Community Hub
A practitioner-driven space for young impact leaders, funders, and capacity builders to find one another, exchange knowledge and forge collaborations.
Jugaad - A Model for Youth-Led Corporate Impact Innovations
Purpose-led corporations can partner with young leaders to leapfrog social and environmental solutions. This is an opportunity for corporations to leverage youth's resourcefulness and ingenuity to drive product, process, or systems innovations.
From philanthropic pooled funds to capacity building coalitions, ayPact works closely with AVPN members to foster collaboratives that strengthen the youth ecosystem.
