Young Global Pioneers establishes global and diverse youth talent networks. Each YGP Talent Network consists of approx. 25 young talents between the ages of 19-25, who come from a broad range of countries and diverse backgrounds. The network is kick-started on a 3-week Learning Journey, where it is strengthened through interaction, teamwork and discussions and reflections within the group.

The networking will be based on your shared experiences on the Learning Journey, where you will meet up with local peers, take part in university and business visits, meet young elite entrepreneurs, see historic sites, experience local art, music and culture as well as gain insights into both social and environmental NGO projects.

Upon completion of the Learning Journey, Young Global Pioneers will continue to support and facilitate the network for life-long friendships and global inspiration. Read more about what happens after the Learning Journey.

Young Global Pioneers connects you with other ambitious and curious talents, who also aspire to become next-generation responsible leaders – bearing in mind that both leadership and talent come in many different shapes and sizes. To YGP, leadership and talent are also about striving to make a difference, and having the ambition to make it happen.
