Our Generation is Unlimited

There are 1.8 billion young people in the world.

Imagine what our world could look like if every single one of us was supported and empowered to fulfil their potential?

But right now far too many don’t get to realize their goals, or are unable to contribute to their communities. Globally, over 200 million adolescents are not in school; and many of those who are, feel like they are not learning the skills that they need. Millions are affected by poverty and violence, living their lives in fear. Too many feel like they don’t have a voice.

We want to see a world where all young people feel empowered, are learning without fear, and gaining the skills and knowledge they need to thrive.

Generation Unlimited brings together the private sector, governments, international and local organizations – and young people – to identify and scale up the best solutions for three major challenges: access to secondary age education, acquisition of employability skills and empowerment, especially of girls. Generation Unlimited is building a new and dynamic model: co-creating innovative solutions; brokering support, mentoring and funding; placing young people at the forefront of change.
