Youth Leadership

Encourage youth leadership with generationOn!

You'll find all the resources you need to ignite the power and potential of young people to become leaders and problem-solvers, successful students and active community members.

generationOn equips, moblizes and inspires young people to:

  • Envision a goal or needed change.
  • Take initiative or action to achieve the goal.
  • Take responsibility for outcomes.
  • And work well with, relate to, and communicate effectively with others.

Youth Advisory Council

Our signature Youth Leadership program is the generationOn Youth Advisory Council. Members of this select 14-person Council help develop and execute generationOn's key initiatives and serve as ambassadors for the power of all kids to make their mark on the world.
