Young social entrepreneurs across South Africa offer a new story of hope and change. To celebrate and support their role as leaders and innovators, IYF has partnered with Monash South Africa (MSA) and Laureate International Universities to launch the MSA LEAD program.
For powerful examples of youth driving positive change, look no further than IYF’s YouthActionNet® global network, which recently welcomed 52 accomplished young social entrepreneurs through its leadership institutes in Brazil, Morocco, Nigeria, and Turkey.
They are creative, determined, and compassionate. Rather than turn the other way, they take action when they see a problem in their community. They are the 2015 BADIR Fellows—20 young Jordanian leaders, who are the latest social entrepreneurs to be selected through a joint initiative of Starbucks, M.H. Alshaya, Co., and IYF.
Young social entrepreneurs across Morocco will soon benefit from training, networking, funding, and advocacy opportunities through Entrepreneurs en Mouvement (Entrepreneurs in Motion), the newest member of the International Youth Foundation’s YouthActionNet® global network.
