REMEMBER YOUTH FUND
GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION FUND.
The Remember Youth Fund is a non-profit entity based in Washington D.C., which works to prevent youth violence and social exclusion in the Americas. This initiative is a continuation of the work that the Ideaborn Foundation has been doing since 2013 to prevent youth vulnerability to engaging in violence and crime in the region, by using arts and sports as a tool to effect social change. The Fund was founded as an independent organization in 2017 to serve as a platform for collaboration between state actors, civil society organizations, academia and the private sector for the promotion of this and other programs related to prevent the engagement of youth in violence and crime and to facilitate youth access to restorative justice. The inaugural project of the Fund, on the use of arts and sports in youth violence prevention, is currently being implemented in the following four cities in Latin America: Bogota, Medellin, San Salvador and Tegucigalpa.
The Global Citizenship Education Fund is a non-profit collaborative platform based in Barcelona, with the objective of promoting human rights education and supporting programs for citizenship and civic education for children and youth. The Fund was formally established in 2018, building on the existing work of the Ideaborn Foundation in this area, and operates through technical working groups, with the aim of giving long term support to initiatives such as the “Forming Responsible Citizens” program, the “One School, One Year”, and the “Diploma in Participatory Education”, seeking to strengthen the capacity of public systems of secondary education. These initiatives will contribute to orienting students on how to assume and put into practice their rights, responsibilities and duties, putting values such as equality between men and women, irrespective of their ethnicity, age, sexual orientation or religion, at the center of these education processes.
