How It Works
YBY is a first stop for young, ambitious youth from any background, from any country.
Participants do not need previous credentials as they prove their talent through action oriented tasks.
Everyone who participates gains an active, supportive global network of peers to encourage them.
YBY is a journey that helps youth define their skills, their goals and is the catalyst to turn their ideas into professional opportunities.
