Impact Facilitator Program

 

Overview

Facilitate ideas into action with the goal of creating and measuring impact

Delegates are invited to connect with the Impact Facilitator in their regions to discuss their goals and report on any progress they have made after attending a conference. This is the opportunity for every Delegate to stay engaged beyond the Assembly. For inquiries, please contact yaopportunities@faf.org.

What is an Impact Facilitator?

While the extraordinary Delegates who make up The Youth Assembly come from diverse backgrounds, they all have one thing in common – their world-changing potential. Our youth network is composed of Delegates who are emerging change-makers, social innovators, advocates, development practitioners, and leaders in their communities and the world at large. Beyond excelling at The Youth Assembly, our Delegates return to their home countries to initiate or continue work on the ground.

With our goal of building a movement of active young leaders and changemakers, Friendship Ambassadors Foundation will appoint Impact Facilitators in various regions around the world. With the plethora of incredible work done by our Delegates worldwide, Impact Facilitators will play an important role in collecting, monitoring, and reporting information about our Delegates’ work, stories, and successes in their respective regions throughout the year. This role enhances and strengthens our connection with our Delegates and helps foster youth action after each session of The Youth Assembly.
