Learn more about your impact

The YouthMappers program cultivates a generation of young people to develop leadership abilities and create resilient communities around the world. An international network of university-student-led chapters, YouthMappers organizes, collaborates, and implements mapping activities that respond to actual development needs around the globe - creating and using geospatial data and information that is made publicly available through open platforms. Your support of the YouthMappers Champion Fund empowers youth to define and change their world by mapping it.

By organizing a global community of learners, researchers, educators, and scholars, YouthMappers create and use open geographic data that directly address locally-defined development challenges worldwide. This consortium supports university efforts to offer meaningful global learning experiences, build a socially engaged citizenry, enhance long-term scientific capacity around the world, and foster youth leadership. Beyond providing critical support for management data systems, communications, validating the data created by students, fellowships, technology transfer, and response to the massive, rapid growth in the demand for YouthMappers participation worldwide, your support of YouthMappers will support student travel and chapter-led, local fieldwork and research activities.
