About State of Youth
The State of Youth aims to empower the youth community (13-24 years) by building a non-political, non-religious digital "state" that transcends borders. Increasing awareness, building advocacy and creating action against the most pressing issues the world faces today, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have a Youth Board that leads and oversees the overall vision of State of Youth. They lend their voices, networks, experience and time to State of Youth to ensure we are representative of a diverse youth point of view. On our unique for youth by youth platform, we will focus our attention, voice and vision to key UN SDGs. The ultimate goal is to create real change and impact, driven by youth, across the world.
State of Youth is an initiative founded by KidsRights and connected by Facebook. KidsRights works with children to create a world in which their rights are guaranteed and they are enabled to realize their great potential. KidsRights is convinced that realizing children’s rights more effectively calls for the perspective, experience and authority of children themselves.
Through the Changemakers Program, KidsRights supports changemaking activities of young talent to move the world to ensure a better future for children’s rights. The program is for everyone from 12 up to 24 years old that wants to contribute to a lasting change for children’s rights in their communities and beyond. Within the overall community changemakers are inspired, activated and empowered so they can improve their projects, scale their projects and impact and grow as changemakers.
