YOUth ACT is a community-based hub for youth activism and impact entrepreneurship in Amsterdam. We strive to be an inclusive, safe and collaborative community that brings together individuals with wide-ranging backgrounds and empowers them to make a social and environmental impact. We offer youth accessible opportunities to acquire practical skills, develop actionable ideas, diversify their network and accelerate personal growth.
The Opportunity We Are Addressing
Amsterdam’s rich pool of knowledge and resources is not equally accessible to all potential changemakers. Existing programs are often only accessible for young professionals or highly privileged and/or skilled students.
Potential young changemakers face barriers to making a social and environmental impact:
insufficient opportunities to develop and apply practical skills
few collaborative spaces to share knowledge and ideas
the lack of a diverse, far-reaching network
We aim to build an inclusive hub where individuals from wide-ranging backgrounds and with diverse skills and interests can develop and actualize their potential to access existing opportunities and become social and environmental changemakers.
