For the purposes of this APS, “organizations” are defined broadly as entities composed of an organized group of individuals which may include non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, community-based organizations, or for-profit entities, but does not include individuals.

Given this analysis, WE Act looks to support organizations that will pilot or expand mechanisms for youth, and young women entrepreneurs in particular, to engage around key issues that are important in their lives. The engagement mechanisms should aim to generate space for youth to engage around economic and/or social issues that may include their ability to start and grow businesses, access important social services, live in a clean environment or other issues that they feel passionate about. Engagement in this call is considered to include accessing and receiving relevant information, as well as participating in dialogue and influencing decision making. The engagement mechanisms that applicants propose can be new initiatives or may build upon existing mechanisms.

Intended Results

  • The intended results for this call are that more youth, and young women entrepreneurs in particular, access mechanisms that enable them to engage about issues that are important to them. If young people are accessing relevant engagement mechanisms and building consensus about key issues that matter in their lives, WE Act believes that over time they will be able to effectively influence decision makers about a range of policies and institutional reforms.
  • The focus of this call is on supporting engagement mechanisms that are accessible, fun, and meaningful for youth. In future calls for concept notes and applications, WE Act will focus on enabling constructive engagement around specific economic and/or social issues that are most important to groups of youth.

Intended Target Organizations

WE Act is interested in partnering with a wide range of organizations that have a passion and vision for supporting youth to be informed and engaged about social and economic issues that impact their lives. The call is interested in potential partnerships with different types of organizations, including youth groups, university groups or clubs, youth-focused media organizations, or other formal or informal groups that promote youth engagement.
