The inaugural 2017 YouLead Youth Leadership Forum brought together 40 “youth ambassadors” from around Sri Lanka to work toward economic empowerment. Under the theme “It’s Our Future,” these young people tackled a wide range of issues including dignity in work, women in the workforce, and entrepreneurship. The youth ambassadors will share the YouLead message and advocate for more economic empowerment in their communities. YouLead is a four-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development. It will improve technical and vocational education and training, create a more skilled workforce, and link youth to more productive careers. The project is implemented by IESC and administered by VEGA. Read more about YouLead’s first leadership forum here.
