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.
