Apply to Global Citizen Prize for Youth Leadership 2018


Apply to Global Citizen Prize for Youth Leadership 2018 – Cisco and Global Citizen are united in their belief that young people around the world are leading the way to create and implement solutions to achieve the Global Goals, and to accelerate global problem-solving. They are joining forces to create the Global Citizen Prize for Youth Leadership presented by Cisco to recognize and lift up a young person positively impacting the world, as a way to demonstrate the impact that young people are having on achieving our common goals.

They are looking for organizations that use an IT-based solution to improve efficiency, reach, and magnify impact. A qualifying IT-based solution is one that produces greater impact, at lower cost, higher quality, with stronger outcomes – and also enables specific metrics for social outcome to be gathered and reported.
