We are pleased to announce the upcoming launch of an exciting new global youth coalition, and to invite your organization to join as a co-founding partner. (Details on EYC membership below.)
Called the Empowered Youth Coalition (EYC), the mission of the coalition will be to unite youth, young adults and youth-oriented organizations across the globe to stand for life and family.
We already have about 20 member organizations that just joined last week from Africa, the Caribbean, and North America, and they are excited to network with other organizations through the EYC platform.
We hope that this coalition will connect previously unconnected organizations with each other to share knowledge, resources and expertise.
We plan to launch the full EYC website on May 15, the International Day of the Family, and we would love to have your organization listed as a co-founding member organization! Our goal is to launch with 100 member organizations on that day.
EYC MISSION AND VALUES
Please see our EYC Mission and Objectives brochure and the EYC Declaration on the Rights of Youth and Their Families LINK.
Our exciting EYC planned educational campaigns include:
Submissions from our members are welcome for all of these campaigns.
Then check out our initial web page at EmpoweredYouthCoalition.org.
Membership in the EYC is free and open to any individual or organization that promotes the protection of life and the family. Later we plan to launch in multiple languages.
Although the tools and information to be shared by the EYC will be oriented toward youth and young adults ages 15-35, people of any age can join and receive the informative quizzes, videos and alerts.
There are two categories of EYC member organizations:
You may be wondering what we will require from our EYC member organizations, but really that is the simple part. Please see our EYC Questions & Answers to get answers to any questions you may have.
While not mandatory, we encourage each mentoring/supporting organization to establish a youth arm if they don’t already have one. Even if you start with just one youth or young adult that you appoint from your organization to participate in the EYC Youth Council (Youth Council Zoom calls will be held every other month), we hope this will jumpstart efforts within pro-life/pro-family organizations throughout the world to help empower more youth and young adults. Just give your new youth arm a new name, and we will add it to the list on the EYC website. This will help us quickly reach our goal of 100 entities. (See a list of ideas for names at the end of this letter.)
All EYC member organizations will be invited to participate in our online Global Empowered Youth Summit planned for November of this year and to submit a proposal for speaking and sharing expertise. More on that later.
If you would like your organization to be a co-founding organization and to be listed on our website when we launch it on May 15, simply fill out the form at empoweredyouthcoalition.org
We look forward to hearing from you!
Please contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together we will build the next generation of pro-life and pro-family leaders!
