Meet GENERATION FUTURE
A mentorship programme in celebration of World Children’s Day
What is Generation Future?
UNICEF's Generation Future is a call out to young Cambodians across the country to transform their potential into action and achievement. It’s an invitation to reimagine themselves as innovators, entrepreneurs, socially conscious artists and engaged communicators.
The young people participating in Generation Future receive one-on-one guidance from accomplished mentors as well as tailored training from UNICEF Cambodia and partners on topics that help them push their projects forward. Each mentee also receives seed funding to scale up their projects and make a real impact in their community.
Over the next six months, the Generation Future 2022 cohort will be developing their social-good initiatives and showcase them at World Children’s Day in November. Can’t wait until then? Follow the #GenerationFuture hashtag on social media for regular updates.
SAY HELLO TO GENERATION FUTURE 2022
After a successful pilot in 2021, we are excited to announce the Generation Future 2022 cohort, 15 brilliant young people and 15 mentors who will be guiding them in their journey. Over 450 entries were whittled down to 15 ambitious ideas to spark meaningful change in communities across Cambodia. Projects will tackle a range of challenges, including climate change, mental health, digital literacy and oral health for pre-school children.
To the hundreds of you who applied to the programme this year and to those of you with even just an initial seed of an idea, don’t worry. You can still get involved with the project by joining the ‘Generation Future’ Facebook group, a collaborative platform run by young people for young people and a space where future leaders can find their voice. The group also gives you access to free educational resources, online training and information to support professional and personal development – and above all, opportunities to be a part of the 15 amazing projects of Generation Future 2022.
We are all Generation Future. Join us as we put our ideas into action.
And now, let us introduce you to the mentees
And our mentors
