The IYC is involved with a number of ongoing projects around the world.
On an International level, IYC is most focused on leadership development and policy dialogue. On the ground, we focus on actual development projects that meet development indicators.
- Think Global, Act Local
This program is run on a global scale, but is all about running educational programs within schools. Depending on the audience (age and background) we will present on international relations, careers, and youth leadership.
- Policy Initiatives
Every time the United Nations, other major NGOs, or Governments issue a call for policy perspectives and solutions, IYC is sure to engage our Members in the process.
We work to send youth all over the world to engage in policy discussions, intercultural dialogue, and leadership training. For more information, please see our Events page.
If there is a major international effort to solve a development crisis (such as poverty, health, environment) we will inform our Members and help them to get involved.
- Project Tracker
Many of our National Chapters and individual Members undertake development projects. We are currently working on a tracking system to make these dozens of projects easy to follow, which we will soon make public.
- Action Grant
Every year we provide a level of grant funding to the Chapters or Members that submit the best proposals for development projects that also empower youth.
