An Accelerator

for People 


About Us

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.


We are recruiting for the upcoming academic year! 

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.
