Where We Work: China
Included in our Youth Wellbeing Index, this vast, rapidly growing nation offers the world a unique reminder of the promise and potential of young people.
We’ve been empowering youth in China to access training and become community leaders for more than a decade, including a partnership with one of the country’s longest-standing nonprofits. Their local knowledge contributes to the success of the Brilliant Futures initiative in preparing Chinese youth with marketable skills, including life skills. Disadvantaged young people like Xie, whose family migrated from the countryside to Beijing, found new opportunities through educational scholarships as part of Unlocking the Potential of Asian Youth. China is also home to several YouthActionNet® fellows whose social entrepreneurship ventures tackle the diverse topics of volunteerism, Chinese girls’ empowerment, and HIV/AIDS prevention.
