Youth Business International (YBI) is the global network of expert organisations in over 47 countries supporting underserved young entrepreneurs to turn their ideas into successful businesses, creating jobs and strengthening communities.
Young people are a critical resource. However, with 71 million young people currently unemployed across the world, this potential is not being realised. Furthermore, of those that are working, many do not earn enough to lift themselves out of poverty. Thus, addressing the youth employment crisis is imperative, not only for the well-being of young people but also to ensure sustainable, inclusive growth and social cohesion globally.
Over the last three years (2015 - 2017), the YBI network has supported 175,445 young people with entrepreneurship training and helped 64,637 young people to start or grow a business. In total, 427,402 young people have been engaged through outreach activities.
YBI’s organisational values are embedded in the work we do:
Tenacity - We won’t give up until every young entrepreneur has the opportunity to succeed
Collaboration – We work together as a team, building trust to connect and empower
Quality - We strive to set the highest standards in youth entrepreneurship support
