Call for Applications- LearningPlanet Youth Fellowship

Deadline: 19 May 2023

The LearningPlanet Youth Fellows community is a global initiative that seeks to identify and connect young leaders who are passionate about our four key focus areas: education, environmental sustainability, well-being and human rights. Our community brings together a diverse group of young people, aged 12-25, from all over the world to exchange ideas, learn new skills, and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges.

Our goal is to create a community of young leaders who can drive positive change in their communities and beyond. Through the community, Youth Fellows will have the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded individuals, participate in workshops and events, and gain access to a wide range of resources and support. Our current and past Youth Fellows have benefited greatly from their involvement in our community, and the opportunities it gave them to connect with other young people with similar goals and aspirations. Find testimonials from our Youth Fellows on our website
