Registration is now open! You can register for the conference officially Global Youth Economic Opportunities that will take place in Washington, DC, from 10 to 12 September. The 7th conference is the main event for specialists, funders, private sector companies, researchers, educators and youth leaders working to increase and improve economic opportunities for young people. Participants will share lessons learned, promising practices, innovative ideas through technical workshops, plenary sessions, and opportunities to expand your network of contacts.

The 2013 Global Youth Economic Opportunities Conference will contain a Spotlight on Rural Youth and a Spotlight on Technology. The learning agenda will focus significantly on these topic areas through the conference's five learning tracks.

How can we better link rural youth to promising, sustainable economic opportunities? Through the Spotlight on Rural Youth, join us in exploring what young people outside of urban centers need to succeed as entrepreneurs and employees.

The Spotlight on Technology has been brought back by popular demand as stakeholders within our field continue to seek concrete examples of how technology is being used effectively in programming, and how organizations are effectively supporting young people in their efforts to start a business or get a job in growth-oriented technology sectors.
The five learning tracks include:

  • Youth Enterprise Development
  • Youth Workforce Development
  • Youth-Inclusive Financial Services Monitoring
  • Evaluation and Impact Assessment
  • Adolescent Girls and Young Women
