Laureate Global Fellows (Youth Action Net)

The Laureate Global Fellowship is a pioneering youth social entrepreneurship program working to redefine how young people lead change.

Launched in 2001, the fellowship invests annually in twenty extraordinary young leaders whose social ventures are transforming how age-old challenges are addressed in their communities and countries. Fellowship applicants earn their spot in this renowned cohort through a rigorous selection process including evaluation by a panel of peer leaders and executives from distinguished global institutions. Sponsored by Laureate International Universities, the Laureate Global Fellowship is one of YouthActionNet’s 23 national/regional youth leadership institutions worldwide, whose fellows shape our network of nearly 1700 youth driving change in over 90 countries.

Through the fellowship, hundreds of young leaders and their ventures have discovered the power of joining a like minded community of peers and received access to the support they need to shape a more just and inclusive future.
