The USAID Youth Excel: Our Knowledge, Leading Change program is conducting a global grant competition for local, youth-led organizations in celebration of the USAID Youth in Development Policy Launch.
Youth Excel seeks solutions from local youth led-organizations around the globe to advance peace and security through local-level social cohesion. Grant competition winners will also use gender equality and social inclusion, research-to-change (implementation research), and knowledge mobilization approaches to strengthen their programs and influence decision-makers. Five youth-led organizations will receive up to $10,000 each to pilot positive change-making and research in their communities.
