Nelson Mandela once pointed out that “the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow,” but there is also ample evidence that the youth of today are leaders of today – responding vigorously to challenges that have included a global pandemic, rising youth unemployment, social injustice, hunger, climate change, and violence. The opportunities for them to collaborate with one another in doing so have never been greater, as they are very well accustomed to working, learning and socializing virtually. The inaugural Youth Giving Summit will offer a timely call to further action both by respected leadership figures and by members of the young attendees’ own peer groups.
We are extremely honored to launch Part 1 of the Summit on Friday, August 12th – International Youth Day – with three distinguished speakers: 2006 Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus (Founder of Grameen Bank ), Siyabulela Mandela, Ph.D. (Regional Project Manager (East & Southern Africa) of Journalists for Human Rights) and Mohaiminul Raqib (Founder, BIHDP / Apprentice, 3ZERO Club). This conversation will be moderated by The Youth Giving Summit Curator and Founder/CEO of The International Social Impact Institute, Elizabeth (Liz) Ngonzi.
We anticipate that our global audience will include young adults, teenagers and their parents, and persons of all ages who are working on youth-oriented initiatives – all of whom will be energized by our speakers’ words and examples and will benefit from discovering a variety of platforms through which they can create their impact.
The Youth Giving Summit is organized by Candid and The International Social Impact Institute, in partnership with 3ZERO Club, CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation, GivingTuesday, Nelson Mandela University, Philanthropy Circuit, and YY Ventures.
