Empowering youth leaders today, for a stronger democracy tomorrow.

Throughout Philippine history, youth-led movements have been instrumental in bringing change in society.

In Youth Leadership for Democracy (YouthLed), we believe that increasing civic engagement among Filipino youth will lead to their strengthened participation in democratic governance.

YouthLed utilizes an issue-based approach to increase civic engagement anchored on leadership development, coalition-building, and civic education and engagement activities in contexts that are relevant to the youth, while supporting their meaningful participation in democratic governance.
