YOUNG LEADERS PROGRAM
The Women Deliver Young Leaders Program connects outstanding young advocates with the platforms, the people, and the resources that can amplify their influence on a larger scale. With an emphasis on sexual and reproductive health and rights, Women Deliver elevates the work of young people taking a stand for gender equality.
The Young Leaders Program is a catalyst for rising advocates that provides access to:
Structured, self-paced, and iterative coursework provides Young Leaders with a powerful foundation that enables them to enact change and deliver for girls and women. The in-depth online curriculum focuses on gender equality and sustainable development; sexual and reproductive health and rights; meaningful youth engagement; communications and media; and grant proposals and financial stewardship. The coursework is supplemented by a rich offering of webinars and tutorials.
Youth are powerful agents of change, but they require support and access to resources to be successful. Unfortunately, institutional donors often see them as lacking a “proven track record” or too young to implement a grant. To fill this gap, Women Deliver has been providing grants to select Young Leaders and alumni since 2014 to implement short-term advocacy projects to advance gender equality in their communities and countries
WOMEN DELIVER CONFERENCES
The Women Deliver Conferences are part of the Young Leaders’ journey and a continued opportunity for Young Leaders and Alumni to build their capacity, skills, and networks to advance their advocacy. In addition to integrating youth voices in all Conference programming, Young Leaders participate in a Young Leaders and Alumni Workshop, a Youth Pre-Conference, and the intergenerational Youth Zone.
