Why support the Youth Town Meeting

At the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice, we believe in the power of youth and the importance of listening to youth voices. The WorldLink Youth Town Meeting develops youth leaders prepared to understand and address social issues in the cross-border region and around the world. Your support empowers middle and high school students to become global citizens and problem-solvers in their schools and communities.

Addressing Gender Inequality

The student-selected theme for the 20th Anniversary Youth Town Meeting is The Impact of Gender Inequality. Students will gain a better understanding of gender roles in leadership, sustainable development, violence, and peace. With issues such as sex-trafficking of boys and girls, sexual assault and job equality on the front pages, the Youth Town Meeting offers a safe space for learning and discussion.

What is the impact of my gift?

The WorldLink Youth Town Meeting is offered at no charge to area schools to provide equal opportunity to all delegations. You make it possible for students from diverse socio-economic, racial, and ethnic backgrounds on both sides of the border to attend the Youth Town Meeting, where students learn from each others' life experiences and from community and global experts.

Youth Town Meeting delegates have gone on to start school clubs encouraging youth to become active leaders in their communities, launch businesses and non-profit organizations addressing social issues, and contribute their ideas to local, national and international discussions about how to resolve some of humanity's greatest challenges.
