Testimonies

“The skills and space that YC gives its members to grow and take the lead and initiative in projects and direct what areas of work we’ll prioritize is great.”
-Gemma Hobcraft, UK, Youth Coalition founding member
“In the YC I learned the power of diversity; so many people bring so many skills, ideas, enthusiasm and expertise to the table, that although a task might seem impossible, it can work!”
-Saskia Husken, The Netherlands, Youth Coalition founding member
“Youth Coalition has helped me gain a still fuller and deeper understanding of my first love in SRHR advocacy. Being a member of the Youth Coalition has taught me to value commitment and ensure that I provide a consistent level of activity and participation in whatever it is that I tell myself to do. It has also helped me to become a self starter and do things without any supervision confidently.”
-Vincent Abrigo, Philippines, current member
“My years in the YC taught me the power of consensus building and provided me with a network of outstanding individuals who are both passionate about human rights and willing to make a difference in the world they live in. My experience in the Youth Coalition and the things I learned from its members were essential in defining my personal goals and life’s purpose.”
-Moises Russo, Chile, past member
“Being a member of the Youth Coalition played an important role in developing confidence to advocate for things that I believe in and in providing me the opportunity to meet admirable activists that changed my entire perspectives in life.”
-Ioana Contu, Romania, past member
