GoalKeepers Youth Action Accelerator

GoalKeepers Youth Action Accelerator

The Goalkeepers Youth Action Accelerator is a 12-month pilot program for youth advocates who understand what it takes to create lasting social change in their communities. The Accelerator supports young people in generating and using data from their communities to improve accountability in local development initiatives related to poverty, hunger, health and well-being, education, gender equality and clean water and sanitation.

The launch of the Accelerator is a direct response to the challenges young people face in accessing sufficient and appropriate resources to meaningfully engage in development decisions and activities that affect their communities.

The Accelerator will support promising youth advocates who are using data in innovative ways to address Global Goals 1-6 — local development challenges related to poverty, hunger, health and well-being, education, gender equality and water and sanitation.
