The passion and dynamism of YouthActionNet Fellows come to life through video. Learn about youth-led social innovations through our Fellow Talks and Change Series of inspiring interviews. Explore the challenges young leaders face in our Leadership Lessons videos. Watch our Webinars for insights and advice on collaborating with business, succession planning, and more. And finally, check out our Program videos to learn more about our network of leadership institutes around the world.


Today’s youth-led ventures are leveraging the power of volunteers like never before. As young volunteers take on significant and expanded roles, do we need to rethink what it means to be a volunteer? These Fellows offer an emphatic ‘yes.’ 

Message to Volunteers: Listen First

Andrea Gonzalez Negron founded Salto Peru to connect low-income micro-entrepreneurs to trained university students, who provide business consulting services. Far from imposing an agenda, Salto Peru volunteers tailor their approach to the needs of those they serve.
