Women Deliver’s Young Leaders Program Named Top Model Youth Leadership Program

At Women Deliver, we believe that the health and rights of young people are a priority. They are powerful spokespeople for their own needs and agents of change who can transform policies, programs, and communities for the better. Across the globe, young people are driving social progress and directly influencing the sustainability and resilience of their communities and nations.

We are thrilled to announce that Women Deliver’s Young Leaders Program has been recognized as one of four top model youth leadership programs by YouthLeadGlobal, a collaboration between the Leadership, Management & Governance (LMG) Project, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), International Youth Alliance for Family Planning, and the Youth Health and Rights Coalition.

This recognition demonstrates the critical role that Women Deliver and the Young Leaders Program play in strengthening and expanding the role of young people in advocating for the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women worldwide.

The Young Leaders Program has so far engaged 400 youth advocates under the age of 30 from more than 100 countries, supplementing and strengthening their work through online learning communities, high-level networking and speaking opportunities, seed grants, and scholarships to attend and participate in the tri-annual Women Deliver Conference.

The Young Leaders Program is already having a significant impact. Current Young Leaders and alumni of the program are doing meaningful work, like mobilizing young mothers to advocate for better sexual and reproductive health policies, and training peer educators and health staff to deliver high-quality, youth-friendly reproductive health services.

Women Deliver is honored by this recognition, and we will continue to ensure that adolescents and young people are involved and provided with the information, services, and opportunities needed to live to their full potential.

Featured alongside Women Deliver’s Young Leaders Program by YouthLeadGlobal as top model youth leadership programs are the Center for Creative Leadership’s Leadership and Debate Program, Emerging Leaders Foundation, and GOJoven International based at the Public Health Institute.
