In the wake of what has occurred with the UK’s decision to leave the EU and a changing international landscape, many young europeans are exploring questions of national/multi-national identity, youth participation and representation, and what the future of the EU might look like. Our diverse group of speakers will explore these questions and the experiences of young people living, working, travelling and studying in the European Union.

According to the United Nations, there are 106 million young people aged 15-24 living in Latin America and the Caribbean, which is 20% of the population. It is the largest proportion of young people ever in the region's history. Youth in the region confront a series of challenges like higher levels of unemployment, lower wages, and drugs.

The Next Leaders of Latin America and the Caribbean Google Hangout will bring together young activists, students and leaders from the region to discuss important issues facing their communities and the world, and how they can play a role in finding solutions.

Access to financial support is a key contributing factor to help youth make their own economic decisions and escape poverty. Providing young people with financial services, from a safe place to save to appropriately structured loans for business or education, can help reduce poverty and fuel community development.

Join us Friday May 6th at 11 am EDT to discuss financial access for youth.
