Vision & Mission


Our vision is young leaders promoting and protecting human rights everywhere.


Our mission is to develop and support young leaders and their organizations to advance health, particularly sexual and reproductive health, education, sustainable development, and civic participation across the globe.



  • We can change the world by investing in youth. GOJoven empowers & supports individual participants’ vision to create positive change in their lives, communities, & countries
  • Different points of view make us stronger. GOJoven encourages strategic thinking, innovation, & inter-sectoral collaboration to maximize impact
  • Systems change when youth get involved. GOJoven shifts the context for adolescent SRHR in the region by enhancing participants’ leadership capacity, commitment, & vision to transform programs & policies

In the current phase of GOJoven, graduates from each country are leading their own independent GOJoven alumniassociations, mobilizing youth & other organizations to create better youth & adolescent SRHR policies, services, programs & resources. Together with local, regional, & international organizations, GOJoven continues scaling up its efforts to contribute to the healthy & productive lives of youth & adolescents in the region.
