DIVERSE YOUNG LEADERS

The future is young and inclusive

 

What is Diverse Young Leaders?

Our Story

"Youth delegation programs? Never heard of that!" Have you ever noticed that many opportunities in youth leadership aren't even that well known or accessible? "Maybe it's time we started encouraging more diversity in spaces like this?" The lack of diversity and inclusion in youth leadership is becoming more and more visible. It is also reflected on a national level, as the lack of diversity in Youth Leadership can also be observed in higher leadership positions. Based on this observation Diverse Young Leaders (DYL) was born, the first initiative in Germany to advocate for more diverse and inclusive youth leadership.

What we do?

Bringing Change and making Youth Leadership more inclusive

Diverse Young Leaders opens the Youth Leadership Arena to disadvantaged young people. We focus specifically on young people who identify as Black or a Person of Color and are about to graduate from high school. Black and People of Color (BPoC for short) are all people who do not necessarily define themselves as white or are discriminated against because of their religion, skin color, ethnicity, culture. We want to empower this group and help them find youth leadership opportunities that are otherwise only prevalent in closed networks and bubbles.
