We build networks of community leaders through our regional and thematic initiatives.

We bring together community leaders and organizations around mutual challenges, geographies, and opportunities. Our initiatives help these local partners move out of isolation and deepen their impact for children and youth.

Our partners connect through our initiatives to share knowledge, generate learning, fuel advocacy, and build movements for social change. We help activate and support initiatives focused on a range of issues impacting children and youth, including access to holistic educational programming, fostering new social and cultural norms, migration, gender equity, trafficking prevention, and climate change.
