WHAT IS THE WEBINAR ABOUT?

Global Fund for Children is committed to raising the voices of young people around the world. To achieve a more just society, youth must have the chance to be heard; to influence policies, programs, and institutions that impact their lives; and to access resources that enable them to lead lives with dignity and independence.

The webinar will introduce our Youth Leadership Council, which serves in an advisory capacity to inform our strategy, as Global Fund for Children adopts a more youth-centered approach. Webinar attendees will have the opportunity to engage directly with council members.

WHEN AND WHERE IS IT?
