YIP Diversity Fund

YIP Diversity FundMaria and Jane

The Youth Initiative Program is an international education that strives to empower young people between the ages of 18-28 to instigate positive social, cultural, and environmental change. Despite its international character, the YIP participant group often lacks representation from certain regions of the world, and from certain socio-economic demographics.

Because the content of YIP often focusses on global challenges as well as an individual capability to take on multiple perspectives, it is essential that there is a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences present at YIP.

In order to meet this need, the YIP Diversity Fund will support 2-4 participants who have the capacity to make YIP a truly international and multi-cultural program.
