Who We Serve

To truly empower young people to become agents of positive change in their local and global communities, we recognize that everyone has a role to play.

This means creating opportunities for youth to get involved and grow regardless of where they are in the world. With over 450,000 members, our community brings together like-minded youth to take part in programmes that span across the world. From Microsoft micro-mentorships to help young entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground, to nation-wide art competitions, to online petitions, we open doors for young people to get involved. We are avid supporters of bringing technology and world issues to the classroom, and support thousands of educators around the world through our TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed) programming. With over 10,000 educators engaged with TIGed from over 3,800 schools in over 140 countries, we connect hundreds of thousands of students worldwide.
