Who is YouLead Volunteers

YouLead Volunteers have played an important role in driving the success of YouLead programs since 2017. As part of the program the YouLead volunteers are responsible to mobilise youth and support coordination of in-country activities and events in their various countries. They increase awareness about YouLead and introduce the YouLead to new partners, participants and potential future volunteers. As local change makers, successful YouLead Volunteers are those active on social media and develop and share contents about YouLead, as they unfold, on relevant platforms.
