a partner

YABT works with companies from different sectors, multilateral organizations, and the Member States and Permanent Observers to the OAS, creating deep and scalable relationships to invest in programs and initiatives that support talent and the capacity of young people, preparing them for the future of work and business.

Human capital matters not only for people, but also for societies (World Bank, June 2018). Investing in entrepreneurship from the angle of economic, social and sustainability has a positive return by reducing the inequality and the constant barriers so that young people have greater options for decent jobs and the option to create their own businesses.

Why an alliance with the YABT?

Partnering with YABT means relying on its expertise, positioning, and ability to connect diverse actors to generate an sustainable and inclusive impact in the communities, creating a transformation model for the empowerment of young people and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

There are multiple benefits when creating an alliance with the YABT. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • High visibility, presence of corporate brand and hemispheric recognition.
  • Get involved as a partner in top-level YABT and OAS events around the countries of the Americas.
  • Strategic connections with OAS leaders, governments, the private sector and influential young entrepreneurs internationally.
  • Access to a growing community of young entrepreneurs who are empowering new technologies and disruptive business models.
  • Implementation of a media campaign with testimonies of beneficiaries of supported programs and initiatives.
  • Among others tailored to strategic partners.
