In celebration of International Youth Day last month, young leaders from across the world shared their experiences making grantmaking decisions as part of the Spark Fund, a participatory fund established by GFC and the Avast Foundation. These young people and their fellow Spark Fund panelists recently selected 56 youth-led and youth-focused organizations in 13 countries to become GFC partners. Hear more from these youth panelists about shifting power to young people to create change.
