Invest in Global Youth

The Global Youth Advancement Network facilitates engagement promoting youth agency, visibility and resilience. In collaboration with the MSU community, youth aged 18-35, and partners around the world, GYAN works to empower global citizenship by creating interactive learning opportunities and programming through curriculum designed to advance and support entrepreneurial endeavors and youth-related research.

Your generous support will allow GYAN to build on MSU’s legacy of global engagement to create innovative solutions that will improve the livelihood of millions of global youth.
