#RisingYouth Research Highlights on Lessons Learned from Participants

Emerging Themes Throughout COVID-19

We asked all of our 2020 grantees to reflect on these questions: What was your biggest success in your project? What lessons did you learn? This report analyzes over 2,200 responses to identify key themes, showcases COVID-19 response projects, collective outcomes, and shares appreciation for the role of our partners.

Connecting the Dots between RisingYouth Projects and the Global Goals

Explore #RisingYouth projects organized by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are a framework of 17 interconnected goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". For this visual, we organized each project by Sustainable Development Goal, grant year, funding amount, and the province or territory where the project took place.
