Working with a solid base of data enables communities to consider and design solutions appropriate to the scale of the problem by addressing systemic challenges. GOYN communities design and evaluate interventions for scale and prioritize those efforts that have the greatest chance to positively impact Opportunity Youth

Over the next ten years, GOYN aims to:

  • Transform outcomes for at least 350,000 young people and improve the lives of millions
  • Create a vibrant global network of communities collaborating to create systems-level change
  • Amplify the voices of opportunity youth and reshape the narrative around their innate assets and potential
  • Generate USD 25M in philanthropic funds to accelerate place-based systems change interventions

“For a long time, I sat alone at home thinking ‘why does nobody think about us?’ Now I realize my story is powerful; I read the newspaper, I am networking, I talk to leaders and other young women about how to start a business, I want to be an example to others.”

– Fatma Mubarak, GOYN Mombasa Youth Advisory Board Member
