In May 2020, One Young World established a fund for young leaders on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response. By directing money to leaders on the front lines, One Young World ensured that resources are being accessed by those who need them most.
Around the world, One Young World Ambassadors continue to combat the coronavirus with the most innovative methods in the most challenging circumstances.
This global crisis demands a global response.

One Young World is meeting that challenge.

One Young World surveyed 1,000 young people from over 65 countries to gather information on how young people are affected by COVID-19.

The report takes a look at what is affecting young people most, and what they are looking for during this crisis.
