YOUNG SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS FROM 90+ COUNTRIES HAVE BEEN SUPPORTED BY YOUTHACTIONNET AND THE LAUREATE GLOBAL FELLOWSHIP SINCE 2002.
Through the Laureate Global Fellowship, carried out in partnership with the International Youth Foundation, we are annually selecting 20 exceptional young social entrepreneurs who are carrying out high-impact ventures, and providing them with mentorship and community that will allow them to have an even larger impact. Laureate Global Fellows hail from across the world and provide an interesting picture of the state of social entrepreneurship in many countries and issue areas.
Through YouthActionNet institutes on 15 Laureate campuses worldwide, we are supporting and empowering young change-makers who are working on important social issues through country-specific materials and programming. Local fellows receive training and support that allow them to grow and sustain their ventures in their country’s context, while connecting them to a global network of other young people who are doing transformative work in their communities.
One way we invest in our students and faculty is through network awards and scholarships, given every year to exceptional candidates at institutions around the world.
Laureate remains committed to helping shape the higher education and employment landscape around the world by being a global force in research and thought leadership.
The Sylvan/Laureate Foundations aims to be a valuable complement to organizations working on education topics both in the United States and worldwide. Since 1997, the foundation has given over $23 million in grants.
