Our Vision & Mission

At IYF, we believe that educated, employed, and engaged young people possess the power to solve the world’s toughest problems.

For more than 25 years, we’ve led and sustained coordinated action to harness the talent and potential of the world’s youth, now numbering 1.2 billion. At the heart of our efforts is building partnerships, initiatives, and curricula that prepare young men and women to succeed as citizens, employees, entrepreneurs, and change-makers.

IYF envisions a world where all young people achieve their full potential and shape the future with power and confidence.

IYF prepares young people to be healthy, productive, and engaged citizens.
