Making Cents Intl. presents the Global Youth Economic Opportunities (GYEO) Summit Virtual Series - Closing Event

About this Event

About:

Join the Summit’s global community of international youth-led and youth-serving organizations, funders and policy makers, business voices, researchers, technical experts, and young leaders as we reflect on the lessons, challenges and opportunities posed by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The multi-format event will include video and live sessions that bring together voices from across the youth development community. The agenda includes:

  • Calls to action from across the GYEO youth development community.
  • Fireside chat with the Ford Foundation and a young leader discussing what “reimagining our systems” means to them.
  • Five live deep dive technical breakout sessions hosted by Summit partners on innovations in entrepreneurship, youth-led design thinking, digital transformation in crisis, youth employment at scale, and on emerging research on the impacts of the pandemic youth-serving organizations.
  • Four expert lightning talks on priority topics such as gender and the workforce, education-tech and digital inclusion, evolving industries of opportunity for youth employment, and youth-led innovation.
  • A live, interactive closing session titled, “Collective Action for Youth-Centered Development Priorities,” with our community and leading voices from USAID, Citi Foundation, The Youth Employment Funders Group (YEFG), the Alliance for International Youth Development (AIYD), and more to explore how we as a collective system of actors can best support policies advancing youth economic opportunity and development in the changing context of COVID-19.
