2024 Yunus & Youth Global Fellowship for Social Entrepreneurs
Deadline: March 7, 2024.
They believe in the power of social businesses to create inclusive economies. Yunus & Youth provides early-stage social business leaders with the tools and training they need to succeed.
The Yunus & Youth Global Fellowship for Social Entrepreneurs is a customized 6-month online program that empowers young people to build, develop and expand innovative and economically viable social businesses that contribute to the achievement of the 17 UN SDGs.
- They welcome applicants between 18 and 30 years of age, who identify as women or non-binary, and who hold primary decision-making power in organizations created to solve a social or sustainable challenge in their community.
- They seek applicants committed to building a business strategy that makes their organization scalable, financially sustainable, and able to quantify their impact.
- The Y&Y Fellowship supports organizations that are already operational. The program methodology includes hands-on activities.
- They understand that only a few countries allow organizations to register as social enterprises, so many social entrepreneurs opt to register their initiatives as non-profits or traditional businesses. For Yunus & Youth, it is essential that you are committed to solving a social or environmental issue, and that you dedicate yourself to developing a financial model that does not depend on grants or donations.
- Co-founders or other team members are welcome to join all activities conducted during the program. However, it’s important to highlight that one person must be accountable for participating in all mandatory activities.
