The Youth Advocacy Group (YAG) consists of 18 young people from around the world who strengthen momentum and increase support for the United Nations Global Education First Initiative (GEFI). The YAG moves forward GEFI’s three main priorities – putting every child in school, improving the quality of learning, fostering global citizenship – amongst their networks and partners by: 1. Facilitating consultations with other youth in their countries, regions, and globally. 2. Providing strategic advice on the education priorities of young people. 3. Promoting the priorities and voices of young people in the advocacy messages and activities of GEFI. 4. Mobilizing young people and governments to make pledges in support of education and hold them accountable to their commitments.
