A Summit inspires and shares content about a critical global issue, during which attendees have a chance to expand their knowledge, build networks, explore innovative new solutions and enrich and scale existing ideas.
After the Summit, young leaders join a growing community of people around the world who are developing solutions. Starting by forming a Team of 5-10 people and meeting with a local YMCA and support coaches (virtually or in-person) the process continues with the design of new or the scaling up of existing solutions.
'Solution Teams' refine their pitch with support from global experts and partners to initiate and/or scale their solutions and ultimately submit a proposal for seed funding.
With support from a local YMCA, teams that have been awarded funding for their solutions start implementation to initiate or scale their actions.
