How does D.I.D.I work?

your own project on an issue that
matters to you.
• At the workshop, you'll ﬁnd out how you can
start your own venture.
• You'll have a chance to begin brainstorming
about issues you care about and how you
can create change around those issues.
• You'll also learn about some of the many
amazing ventures led teams of youth around
The D.I.D.I. Initiative is a partnership between two organizations:
Youth Venture and Global Kids:
•In 2006, Global Kids became the ﬁrst nonproﬁt to develop a
dedicated space for conducting programming in TSL.
•Youth Venture was launched with the vision of changing society
such that everyone would have the freedom and societal support to
address social needs. An essential element of this vision is to enable
young people to learn early on in life that they can lead social
change. Youth Venture inspires and invests in teams of young
people to start social ventures, and is working to build a powerful
network of young social entrepreneurs across the world.
