Where We Work: United States

Founded in the American Midwest and headquartered in Baltimore since 1996, IYF partners with a host of US companies, nonprofits, and foundations. 

Working in concert with our five other regions, we're creating shared value at home and abroad. With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we've shared innovative global approaches for increasing youth connection and resilience in the United States through the (Re)Connecting Youth initiative. As the result of our partnership with Hilton Worldwide, access to our Passport to Success® e-content has supported their employees in US cities with critical life skills. Through our YouthActionNet® Laureate Global Fellowship, we've connected young US leaders with a network of peers and mentors in support of their social entrepreneurship ventures. The United States ranks sixth among the 30 countries included in the inaugural Global Youth Wellbeing Index.
