Who We Are
Advancing Youth Development
Future International Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in New York City and globally with the purpose of addressing youth issues and involving them as contributors, leaders, and volunteers in areas of social and economic development.
We see it as a way to put co-leadership into practice, as well as co-design frameworks and put policies with youth. Education, employment, climate change, poverty, peace, and security are just a few of the problems we face, making it challenging to identify local needs. As a result, today’s decisions and policies will have a direct impact on future generations of youth.
We advocate for children and young people’s rights and strengthen their representation in decision-making processes, as well as provide learning and development programs, by establishing a diverse, equal, and inclusive platform for championing their civic rights.
The Future Ahead
To empower youth and young people at all levels, we need even more political will and structural reforms in achieving a sustainable future for all youth.
To assist learning and development, we need to provide tailored solutions to children and young people.
To actively create the democratic society and increase awareness about issues affecting youth, we need youth civic engagement.
To allow youth to express themselves and speak up for what they believe in, we need a more equal, diverse, and inclusive society.
At the highest levels of global diplomacy, we need to strengthen youth leadership and provide a variety of youth leadership programs and advocacy training.
