YOUthACT Starterpack

What is the Starter Pack?


The driving force behind the Starterpack is our ambition to enable more young people to become agents of change, by democratizing the access to leadership, social entrepreneurship and advocacy skills. During this 4-week program we select a cohort of 10 passionate high potential individuals or groups (2-3 people) from diverse backgrounds. Through workshops hosted by experienced activists, advocates, and entrepreneurs in the field, we offer practical soft and hard skills. Skills we cover during the workshops range from defining one’s bias and assumptions to improving digital literacy. The Starterpack is completely free of charge(!) due to donations, subsidies and the continuous support from our workshop trainers and mentors.

The 3 phases

The Starterpack exists out of 3 phases with corresponding workshops. These workshops will be hosted by experienced trainers.


The themes for the Starterpack 2024 will be:


On top of the workshops, YouthAct’s Starterpack provides all participants with individualized coaching and mentorship. We have selected mentors who have experience in the field of social and environmental impact making. We believe receiving individual feedback and guidance is an essential part in the process of transforming an idea into an own standing organization. We are happy to present experienced mentors from different fields that decided to take part in our programme. We will share their personal stories and skills via our social media channels!

YOUthACT’s alumni community

On completion of the Starterpack, the participants, speakers and mentors will become part of our community, where they can enjoy YouthAct’s events, internship/job-opportunities and network. 

Starter Pack workshops will be hosted in Amsterdam or in a hybrid form depending on the current COVID-19 regulations.
