The Children’s Policy and Funding Initiative is a collective effort to elevate critical issues affecting young people globally and to influence the U.S. government to treat these issues as a top priority in U.S. diplomacy, funding and foreign assistance. Part of the Initiative includes a Youth Alliance Working Group comprised of passionate young people with critical insight on the issues impacting them. The Initiative is a pooled funding project housed at Tides Center and made possible through generous funding provided by several leading foundations.
