YES Campaign

The YES Campaign strives to build the individual capacity of youth in order to create sustainable livelihoods and to establish an entrepreneurial culture where young people move toward formal employment.

The 83 YES country networks are a unique platform from which to accomplish this goal, spanning many cultures, contexts, and geographies.

With the support of diverse stakeholders, networks organize and facilitate customized programming that relies on youth to drive the implementation process. 

YES Inc., is an international non-profit dedicated to fighting poverty through large-scale job creation and entrepreneurship for youth.

The YES Campaign was launched by 1600 delegates from 120 countries at the Alexandria Youth Employment Summit, in Egypt on September 11, 2002. The Alexandria Summit was hosted by the Arab Republic of Egypt and was co-chaired by H.E. Mrs. Suzanne Mubarak, First Lady of Egypt and Hon. William J. Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States.
