Youth empowerment 


Youth Co:Lab established the Youth Empowerment Alliance to actively engage ecosystem players who are contributing to youth empowerment across Asia-Pacific. With a focus on youth entrepreneurship and social innovation, this Alliance is one of the most powerful networks connecting young social entrepreneurs to finance, mentors, partners and support. The Alliance includes partners from government, the private sector, youth organization, academia, and the development sector.
