How we work
1. Real world content
All content is developed by young people for young people, and entirely based on real-world, practical experiences from young people from different cultures, backgrounds, and professional fields from all around the world.
2. Non-judgmental environment
Open, non-judgmental, authentic group settings in which young people are accepted for who they are and seen as the experts of their experiences.
3. Connection to self
The stripping away of external noise, pressure, and expectations so that young people can connect to what they feel, think, need, and desire.
4. Connection to others
Connect with people from around the world from different cultures, backgrounds, and professional fields with unique life stories and experiences through peer-to-peer dialogues and exchanges.
5. Awareness & understanding
The GYL frameworks allow young people to understand the process behind the different life themes. They show how young people can take the lead over their own unique life experiences and challenges.
6. Sharing tools and approaches
Young people find what works for them and develop personalized and practical tools and life approaches they need to navigate their unique life challenges and decisions.
Young people feel OK when they feel connected to themselves and feel prepared to take on challenges and create life in their own unique way.
About our programs & network
"GYL is such an eye opener. Its workshops have shed light on my path and blessed me with a safe space where I can discuss my professional and intellectual evolution. I have been enriched by the tactful honest and hopeful words of the many international, young people involved."
"I have taken around 6 talent development courses and this was better than any of them. It's difficult for me to open up sometimes and be vulnerable, but you created the safest space to do so, and I felt SO comfortable. Also, sharing some of their experiences was amazing to hear and really set the tone for the rest of the session. I appreciated the transparency and rawness of it."
It was so inspiring to take part in one of the first workshops in Amsterdam. The thought-provoking and empowering framework for sharing and reflecting on how we make path-defining choices is a beautiful way to inspire positivity and most importantly, to connect with awesome people with diverse experiences.
