Our Value Proposition
Guide & Consult
Through personalized one-on-one assistance and sustained no-fee consultation, we design action plans to address the needs of youth organizations across a range of operational areas. WFYC also deploys its youth development expertise and financial resources through special programs and customized training.
Network & Learn
As a membership-based international federation, WFYC looks to curate knowledge across a range of youth development models to improve organizational efficiencies, develop youth professionals, and enhance the work of board volunteers. Through traditional platforms such as the WFYC Annual International Conference and digital Webcast sessions, we aim to enhance knowledge and foster stronger connections between our Affiliate Members.
Promote & Amplify
We advocate on behalf of the youth development movement by promoting the benefits of investing in organizations, leaders, and staff dedicated to this work. WFYC’s Global Recognition Program recognizes outstanding performance across several categories. Targeted WFYC Mini-Grants look to create leverage or seed capital for local youth programs. WFYC ultimately intends to bridge the gap between funders and the youth organizations we represent.
