Refugee Youth Participation and Leadership

Refugee youth are frequently left out of decision-making processes on issues that affect their lives. The talent, energy, and potential of young refugees are vital resources in global efforts to prevent and respond to challenges affecting all refugees. The Women’s Refugee Commission is committed to ensuring refugee youth have a voice in conversations about refugees and their futures. We also partner with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees on the Global Youth Advisory Council, which brings together young people to make recommendations on addressing challenges and priorities of refugee youth.
