The World We Want Foundation partners with dedicated organizations and individuals that bring knowledge, expertise, business acumen, social entrepreneurial vision, energy, fortitude, and funding resources to our program.

We work with two kinds of Partner Organizations.
Partners that provide teams of Young Global Citizens with the opportunity to conduct Social Action Projects, and Mentors to guide them. These Partners are typically nonprofit educational, charitable, or community based organizations, including public and private schools, youth organizations and clubs, civil society organizations, and other foundations.
They provide a team of Young Global Citizens who want to conduct a Social Action Project and a Mentor to guide and advise the team during the Project. They receive and distribute any funding we provide for the Project, and they often provide more than one Team and Project.
They are the catalysts for change and share the credit for engaging young people to develop skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century while creating positive social change.
A Mentor provided by this kind of Partner supervises a team of Young Global Citizens in a project based active learning process, helping the team members seek and find substantive knowledge about the subject matter of the Project and gain 21st-century skills from conducting the Project, skills vital to becoming effective leaders and engaged citizens, including leadership, teamwork, critical thinking, civic engagement, and digital media communication – all while creating social value in the community.
Each Mentor should be affiliated in some significant way with the team's Partner Organization, such as a teacher at a Partner school, a counselor or service learning coordinator, or a director at a Partner youth organization.
Here are some of the benefits of becoming this kind of Partner:
Partners that are interested in providing other kinds of support for youth development.
These Partners are typically community foundations, family foundations, corporations, small businesses, governmental agencies, individual donors, and other nonprofit organizations or other entities interested in joining us in supporting or funding youth development. Their support or collaboration ranges from simply sharing logos and mission statements on our respective websites, to sharing resources, to making donations to us or to Projects, to partnering in grant applications and fundraising activities and more.
Here are some examples of this kind of Partner:
In every case, we'll shine a light on your organization! We'll post your logo, mission statement, and all other information about you that relates to our shared goals on our website for the world to see. We can even make a video for you that you can use to tell your story to the world.
We provide philanthropic opportunities to institutional partners of all kinds. To leverage our strengths, to share best practices, and to increase the scale of outcomes, we welcome collaborative relationships with entities and groups interested in helping Young Global Citizens conduct Social Action Projects that create positive social change, share their Stories of Social Impact with the world, and become effective leaders, engaged citizens, and productive members of society.
Together with our Partner Organizations, we are invested in the extraordinary potential of Young Global Citizens around the world acting as agents of change to address societal challenges.
