Terms of Reference for Global Young People’s Action Team
17 June 2021
Generation Unlimited is a global, multi-sector partnership that aims to transform education, employment and entrepreneurial outcomes for young people around the world at a global and local level, by joining together partners from business and governments with the reach and network of the United Nations.
Generation Unlimited’s vision is to make sure all young people have the ability and opportunity to realize their potential and the impact comes from both what we do and how we do it.
The purpose of the Young People’s Action Team (YPAT) is systematic and meaningful engagement of young people in the decision-making processes of GenU at local, regional and global levels. At the global level, the YPAT will contribute to steering and influencing the direction of GenU. The local YPAT will play a similar role at country level.
The global YPAT is part of the governance structures of GenU and will act as the sounding board to the global GenU team, ensuring that the voices of young people, especially the most vulnerable and marginalized, are heard by other GenU governing structures (Global Board1, the Leaders Group, the Secretariat, and the Executive Committee4) and taken into consideration in the planning and operationalization of GenU.
