Young women and men are important to achieving gender equality and ending violence against women and girls around the world. To improve the lives of women and girls globally now and for generations to come, we must invest in youth development and mentor young leaders for gender equality. These student Z clubs are intended to offer opportunities for young people to develop communication and leadership skills, promote career exploration and encourage members to participate in community, school and international service projects.
