ABOUT US

We understand, encourage and amplify positive grassroots efforts against violent extremism and hate speech.

Who we are?

We are YouthCAN, a global activist community that was created to understand, encourage and amplify positive grassroots efforts against violent extremism and hate speech. We are a network of young individuals, not institutions, connecting people from all walks of life, from all over the world to unite against hate. The youth voice has often remained unheard when it comes to combating social issues, but we believe it is a powerful one that needs to be included for real change to occur.

YouthCAN operates an online community of youth activists and creatives that provides training and resources to upskill young people in order to empower them to develop counterspeech campaigns that can work to prevent and counter extremism.
