Do you have a vision to create change in your community? Are you ready to share your youth-led innovative solutions and accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals?  The EU Empowerment Fund (YEF) and the Big Six Global Youth Mobilization (GYM) partnership, which aims to empower young people to drive positive change in their communities.

The European Union, in partnership with the Global Youth Mobilization (GYM), an initiative of the world’s largest youth organisations—the “Big Six”—is launching an OPEN CALL for applications to the EU Youth Empowerment Fund through the Global Youth Mobilization until July 21.
