Mission and objectives

Youth Co:Lab positions young people front and center in order to solve the region’s most pressing challenges. Co-created in 2017 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Citi Foundation, Youth Co:Lab aims to establish a common agenda for countries in the Asia-Pacific region to empower and invest in youth so that they can accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through leadership, social innovation and entrepreneurship.

Context

The Skill Our Future initiative, jointly led by UNDP and other partners, aims to create digital pathways for youth to not only support their employability but also enable them to thrive as globally engaged citizens, contributing to the sustainable development of their communities and beyond. With a marked focus on providing opportunities for youth from underserved communities, the program equips young people with the necessary 21st-century and digital skills they need to prepare for the future of work. Access the platform here: https://www.skillourfuture.org/learn. To promote the launch of this digital learning platform, Skill Our Future will run a social media campaign called #SkillUpRiseUp to raise awareness and visibility on the importance of 21st-century skills (digital skills, soft skills, employability, and SDGs awareness) across Asia-Pacific, encourage youth communities to develop their skills and address the SDGs, and celebrate youth who have been upskilling themselves for a better future. To that end, Skill Our Future intends to collaborate with Online Volunteers with expertise in digital campaigns to support the Youth Team in raising awareness of the importance of digital skills, soft skills & employability for young people; celebrate how young people are upskilling themselves & taking the lead to address the SDGs; and increase the visibility of Skill Our Future channels and boost registrations on Skill Our Future learning platform through various social media platforms, i.e: Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, X, TikTok, etc.
