Join the Business, Entrepreneurship, and Private Sector Engagement Community of Practice (BEPSE CoP) for our first webinar of our 2023 theme: private sector engagement from a youth perspective.

The Global Opportunity Youth Network (GOYN), a multi-stakeholder initiative committed to creating place-based systems shifts for youth economic opportunity, will talk about their Public Private Youth Partnership (PPYP) in Mombasa, Kenya.
