Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges: Meet the 2017 Laureate Global Fellows
In an uncertain world, the 2017 Laureate Global Fellows have made one thing clear: we don't need to wait to make a difference.
Boldly pursuing creative solutions and mobilizing peers to join them, these 20 young leaders represent the resilient spirit of youth worldwide who are answering the call of global challenges by starting with change at the grassroots.
From using 3D printing to increase access to assistive technology for individuals living with disabilities in Australia to leveraging the power of story to connect citizens in Venezuela, these founders of youth-led organizations in 17 countries have already achieved measurable impact.
Through the Laureate Global Fellowship, made possible by Laureate International Universities, the 2017 class will spend the next year and beyond developing their leadership abilities, growing the impact of their ventures, and connecting with our network of 1,500 like-minded changemakers in 90+ countries.
